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.

hi thanks for the speedy reply.

however i have run an online update to get the latest kernel + all the other recomended packages, rebooted and the problem has gone away. thanks again. steve.
