    On Mac OS X 10.3 Panther I no longer can connect to sshd using Putty.

    In Webmin v. 1.210 the ssh server reports the following:

    "Failed to get a version number from the SSH server program /usr/sbin/sshd.
    Maybe your module configuration is incorrect. Output from the command
    /usr/sbin/sshd -h was :"

    That is it. I've tried running /usr/bin/sshd from a command line thinking
    maybe it wasn't started, but I get all sorts off command not found errors
    and then a command substitution that is gobbly gook and begins with:

    "line 2: syntax error near unexpected token..." and then a whole bunch of
    strange characters.

    The only thing that has changed on my box recently was I installed ffmpeg,
    which upgraded a number of dependencies on my box, but none of them should
    have anything to do with openssh.

    I have reinstalled ssh several times from webmin. Any help would be much

    Best Regards
