    I have a server running ssh-3.2.5 from and am trying to connect
    from a SUSE client running OpenSSH_3.7.1p2. The connection keeps trying
    to use ssh1 which I don't want and don't have installed. Has anyone
    else experienced this and have a fix. Based on the message

    debug1: no match: 3.2.5 SSH Secure Shell (non-commercial)

    I am assuming that open ssh is unable to determine which protocol the
    server is running. Any ideas?
