cant connect, ssh hangs after SSH2_MSG_KEX_DH_GEX_GROUP



Hi,

starting a while ago I can no longer ssh into my box anymore. I have tried anything I can think of and have no clue anymore. Needless to say that I realy need ssh to access my work from remote places.

Problem:
When I ssh -vvv to my server the connection hangs after
debug1: expecting SSH2_MSG_KEX_DH_GEX_GROUP

System:
I'm using Debian with openssh-server (1:4.3p2-8)
sshd: OpenSSH_4.3p2 Debian-8, OpenSSL 0.9.8c 05 Sep 2006
uname -a: Linux server 2.6.18-3-686 #1 SMP Mon Dec 4 16:41:14 UTC 2006 i686 GNU/Linux

What I tried:
I have recompiled a recent openssh from source on the client with now success. (I have no root access on the client and they use an older version of ssh)

I have booted grml (grml.org, a live linux cd) on my server and tried to connect to the sshd running from cd in order have a fresh sshd on my server.

I have purged and reinstalled openssh-server to get a fresh configuration.

I _can_ connect with putty on a windows client.

I hope you can help me, and thank you for your consideration.
