different ssh protocal?

Hi, i get an error when i use Xstart connect to a linux server through the ssh protocol. The linux server is runing "SSH-2.0-3.2.3 SSH Secure Shell (non-commercial)".

BTW, i can connect to some other linux server which run OpenSSH.

the xssh window:
Connected to

Server: SSH-2.0-3.2.3 SSH Secure Shell (non-commercial).

I guess it is some different between xmanager's ssh protocol and ssh.com's ssh protocol. (?)

Could someone tell me how to connect to the ssh.com's sshd? thanks!!

Re: different ssh protocal?

The problem might be caused by zlib compression option. Please try to turn off the option as following:

1. Run Xstart.
2. In the Protocol list, click Advanced.
3. Click Protocol tab.
4. Clear "zlib compression" check box.
5. Click OK to implement the change.

Hope to solve the problem.
