ASA5505, can't SSH in all of a sudden

We have an ASA5505 at our backup site/co-location. Solarwinds reported that last night it went down and then came back up 3 minutes later.

Right now, I can ping this device from headquarters, but can't SSH in. I ran ethereal during an attempted SSH session. The three way handshake completed, so I know port 22 is still open.

All other devices at the co-location are accessible. Any ideas? I can ping it like I said, so the routing must be in place.

    no. We have a machine with a console cable connected to it. And I consolled in successfully, then I saw something about a memory leak and now we can't even console in

    ok do one thing. Try to change the port speed if you are using putty or secure crt. If it doesn't work then could it be  possible for you then reload it then at the boot prompt press escape and try to write boot flash:flashname.
