I have not noticed this before. Ideally, it must be same for SSH and Telnet. But this is what I found in the Cisco Command Reference Guide for PIX 6.3

"When accessing the firewall through Telnet or SSH, the session closes if there is not enough system memory available to process the banner messages or if a TCP write error occurs in attempting to display the banner messages. "

Hi,

Is your PIX handling/processing heavy load? It could be due to that reason, but it shouldn't be the case if the connection < 50K. I have seen PIX with 98K concurrent sessions but ssh/telnet/https connection are stil running fine. The banner is set to use motd.

What's your PIX's version/specs (use sh version to check).

Rgds,

AK
