Regen keys

Hi there

I think you may need to regenerate your SSH keys - in my version I do :

/usr/local/bin/ssh-keygen -t rsa1 -f /usr/local/etc/ssh_host_key -N ""
/usr/local/bin/ssh-keygen -t dsa -f /usr/local/etc/ssh_host_dsa_key -N ""
/usr/local/bin/ssh-keygen -t rsa -f /usr/local/etc/ssh_host_rsa_key -N ""

This will ask if you want to overwrite your keys - say yes, then restart sshd. Should resolve your new ssl installation. If this doesn't work then get back to me.....

SSH-KEYSIGN(8)						    BSD System Manager's Manual 					    SSH-KEYSIGN(8)

NAME
ssh-keysign -- ssh helper program for hostbased authentication SYNOPSIS
ssh-keysign DESCRIPTION
ssh-keysign is used by ssh(1) to access the local host keys and generate the digital signature required during hostbased authentication with SSH protocol version 2. ssh-keysign is disabled by default and can only be enabled in the the global client configuration file /etc/ssh/ssh_config by setting HostbasedAuthentication to ``yes''. ssh-keysign is not intended to be invoked by the user, but from ssh(1). See ssh(1) and sshd(8) for more information about hostbased authen- tication. FILES
/etc/ssh/ssh_config Controls whether ssh-keysign is enabled. /etc/ssh/ssh_host_dsa_key, /etc/ssh/ssh_host_rsa_key These files contain the private parts of the host keys used to generate the digital signature. They should be owned by root, read- able only by root, and not accessible to others. Since they are readable only by root, ssh-keysign must be set-uid root if hostbased authentication is used. SEE ALSO
ssh(1), ssh-keygen(1), ssh_config(5), sshd(8) AUTHORS
Markus Friedl <markus@openbsd.org> HISTORY
ssh-keysign first appeared in OpenBSD 3.2. BSD
