Cannot connect to Cisco ASA through SSH using PuTTY

I am trying to connect to my Cisco ASA5505 through SSH using PuTTY from my inside LAN.  I can use Telnet with no problem, but I keep getting the attached error immediately upon attempting a SSH connection.  

PuTTY SSH connection error
I have done the following SSH configuration on my ASA:

crypto key generate rsa modulus 1024
ssh inside-interface inside
ssh timeout 20
ssh version 2

The authentication has also been set to go through the LOCAL database.  On the PuTTY side, Blowfish encryption has been moved ahead of AES (SSH-2 only) (I read online that this was a known issue), and SSH version 2 is set as the preferred version.  What could be causing this issue??  Have I left out something??  Someone please help me with this.

Do you have aaa configured?
Dustin23IT DirectorAuthor Commented:
Yes.  It has been used in production for more than a year.
do you have a domain-name set on your ASA? it is needed for rsa to work properly

hostname Name_of_ASA
domain-name Name_of_Domain ex. company.local
crypto key generate rsa modulus 1024

Yes that is all set as well.
What IP address are you trying to connect from. Is this on the subnet directly attached to the inside? What subnet mask are you using on the inside?

What version of Operating system are you using?

Can you execute the following;

crypto key zeroize rsa
crypto key generate rsa modulus 1024
aaa authentication ssh console LOCAL
username admin password Password123 privilege 15

Then attempt to connect using those credentials

I am using Win 7 Pro SP1.  SSH authentication is already set, but I will complete the other commands and see what happens.  Thanks!
