Can you send the output from a verbose login to this server?
And the version of the Tectia client?
That way, we can see which algorithm it's failing on.
It could be weak ciphers.

Tectia Client in default configuration tries automatically all your keys with publickey authentication. Many SSH servers consider this illegal and let your client to try only certain number of keys. Try:
or if you use publickey authentication chose the key that is authorized on that machine. For ewxample like this (there are many orther ways Tectia Client can do this):
In any case running sshg3 in verbose mode should give you much better idea of what is going on:
