Yes I tried that but still no luck. Here is some additional info regarding the issue:

SSH using keys for authentication
Sun -> Sun good
Sun -> WindowsXP good
WindowsXP -> Sun good
Win2K3 - > Sun good
Win2K3 - > WinXP good
Sun - > Win2K3 bad
WinXP - Win2K3 bad



If it helps, here is the output to "ssh localhost"
$ ssh -vvv localhost
