Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

that is why i pointed out that for "Centos Linux" the answer as per my experience was to install ssh-client packages. I am not arguing with the past answer as it was correct. If my comment does not suits the ethics of this forum, you are free in any time to close/eject my account. Linux is Freedom! and not have only a single solution.

Reason: I want to make a point that this is LINUX
This isn't about banning or discipline, your answer is fine and potentially additive. The thing about resurrecting very old posts is that not everyone can readily notice that it was old and they'll see this ongoing discussion, then suddenly you'll have a number of persons offering further suggestions or inquiring for clarification or updates on the OP's problem. When that problem was actually self-resolved many years ago and in fact the OP may not longer be viewing the forums at all, for instance if you search on posts made by the OP you last see any posts made back in 2012.
What is caused by resurrecting it means that this post gets brought to the forefront in the forum it is in, thus giving the appearance that there is activity related to the original problem. Or that someone encountered the problem anew and was asking further follow-up.
To me, it's a style choice. One can always start a new thread and refer back to this one and ask a further question. Offering added advice to a very old problem is maybe helpful, but if you look at what the OP did, they tinkered with the profile on their remote machine, thus causing a problem, once they reversed that tinkering, the problem went away.
Whatever, your advice is there, leave it, perhaps it will be of use to someone in the future. Or add more if you like.
There are helper things like the thread tools which will show you zero reply threads and for me when I browse forums the first page of the forum threads usually has the most currently active threads where people are actively working on resolving open problems.
