SSH to Cisco devices

I'm having some trouble connecting to Cisco routers and firewalls that are SSH-enabled.  I can connect to more typical SSH hosts (like Linux servers) just fine.  When I try to connect to a Cisco firewall or router, though, I get only a blinking cursor after supplying credentials.  Has anyone found a workaround for this?  I'm using Terminals 1.7e on WinXP SP3 and on Vista SP1.

Depending on your version Cisco was in between SSH version 1 and 2 (1.5) so it was difficult using some clients. Can you connect using other clients?

I currently use PuTTY to manage these devices and it works without any trouble at all.

Putty will automatically choose the appropriate ssh version. Try forcing it to use version 2 only.
