I believe 'ssh -V' will give you the information you want. Check 'man ssh' for more.

That is correct.

mikeshn,

I don't understand what you mean by ssh1 or ssh2.. it will usually look something like this:
Code:
drew@trickykid:~$ ssh -V
OpenSSH_3.7p1, SSH protocols 1.5/2.0, OpenSSL 0.9.7b 10 Apr 2003
ssh or better yet, Openssh isn't referred to as ssh1 or ssh2.. and so on.

Cheers.

2 different versions

There are actually 2 different versions of the SSH protocol. If you read the manpage for ssh it will describe how each works. I beleive by default it uses ssh2 but if you want to force it there is a command switch.


ssh -1 Force protocol version 1
ssh -2 Force protocol version 2

The man page does say this:

Code:
     -1      Forces ssh to try protocol version 1 only.

     -2      Forces ssh to try protocol version 2 only.
Unfortunately that is about all I can add to this subject.

The above post went in before I could hit submit I swear!

Ayee.. he should have mentioned protocol then and not make it sound like he was wanting the version that was being used...

I've never seen it mentioned or stated like "ssh1" or "ssh2"...
