SSH 'version mismatch' error and fix in 10.1 UNIX
If you installed your own version of SSH (particulary using instructions from Stepwise) under 10.0.4, you may get an error such as this

OpenSSL version mismatch. Built against 90581f, you have 90602f

when you try to use SSH in 10.1. Stepwise has the solution in the form of a "SSHCleanup.command" shell script; click here to view the script's contents. To use it, copy and paste the text into a new text file and name it "ssh-cleanup.command". Save the file (in pure text format), then open a terminal and type sudo sh ssh-cleanup.command in the directory where you saved the file.

This should fix your SSH problems in 10.1. Thanks to Peter H. for finding both the error and the solution.

ssh still not working

I tried the cleanup command from Stepwise and SSH is still giving me the "version mismatch" error. :(<p>What else can I try? Is there any way of doing a "clean-reinstall" of SSH?<p>Thanks in advance for your help...

What you could do is download the pre-packaged latest version of OpenSSH from:

Once you run a gnutar -xvf on it, you should see a bunch of folders (bin, lib, sbin, etc.) with files in 'em. All you gotta do then is copy or move those files into the correct places in your directory. So:

bin files -> /usr/bin
sbin files -> /usr/sbin
lib files -> /usr/lib
etc files -> /private/etc
man files -> /usr/share/man

Make sure you're the root user before you do the unpacking and cp/mv'ing.

Anyway, it's a more tedious way to do it but ssh works for me fine now.

If you run the cleanup script from StepWise and then re-run the 10.1 installer, SSH will work properly.
