No luck... I tried it just to be sure.
it has to be SSH v2

this is the error I get by the way...
channel 0: open failed: resource shortage: Channel open failed

and like I said, it only happens in openSSH 4.6 and later...

I'm sure it's bug in their SSH Daemon...so I need to get an old port  
of OpenSSH
