what OS/version are you ssh'ing from?    what version of ssh is 
installed on this? [1]

what OS/version are you ssh'ing to?   what version of sshd is installed 
on this? [2]

what network media is between these two hosts?  anything out of the 
ordinary in the setup?

[1] rpm -q openssh-clients  - assuming this is a recent centos
[2] rpm -q openssh-server     ''    ''
