fix ssh so it uses ssh1
Authored by: see on Jun 24, '01 09:38:34AM

the 10.0.4 update makes ssh use ssh2 by default instead of ssh1, and since many people use ssh1 this might end up with problems like:

Disconnecting: Bad packet length -1483636419.

when trying to connect to a host with sshd version 1.
to fix this:
1) force ssh to use protocol 1
ssh -1 user@serverhost
2) edit /etc/ssh_config
change: "# Protocol 2,1"
to: " Protocol 1,2"
3) upgrade sshd on serverhost to version 2
