Unhappy Remote SSH login causing system shutdown


I am experiencing a very strange problem in that whenever i try to ssh into my freshly installed suse 9.2 Pro server from a machine on the local network the server will shut itself down. I have reinstalled the server and this made no difference.

I am trying to connect using the putty windows client.

Sometimes it will bring up a login prompt just before the server has started/is shutting down and ask me if i want to accept the key and sometimes it just can't find the server because it is already nearly switched off.

I could really do with sorting this out soon as the server does not normally run with anything else but power and ethernet plugged in.
