And it just hangs there until the connection times out. Any ideas on
what might be causing a hang at that stage?

KEXINIT messages can be quite large. Guess: could it be

It's possible, but I don't think so. I will post tomorrow similar
information but where I force SSH v1 protocol. There will be a
similar hanging point. What would be a good tool to use to see if a
KEXINIT message is in fact being transmitted, however slowly?

Here is the output of a version 1 attempt:

$ ssh -1 -vvv -p 23 aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd
OpenSSH_4.6p1, OpenSSL 0.9.8e 23 Feb 2007
debug2: ssh_connect: needpriv 0
debug1: Connecting to aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd [aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd] port 23.
debug1: Connection established.

And then it just hangs like always...
