That sounds to me like ssh[2]dos requires an additional piece of software to interface with the network, in much the same way that the Wireshark [formerly Ethereal] network sniffer requires the WinPcap packet capture driver to capture packets off the network. I suggest you read the docs for ssh[2]dos and see what its dependencies are. Personally though I'd go with putty if you can, it's much simpler.

I got mine to work (after reading your post a few days ago) with the following:

You need the following in your config.sys (using your own path for \NETTCP):
rem The protocol manager:
rem The packet driver:
rem The NIC-specific driver (this one for AMD):

You need the following in AUTOEXEC.BAT (or somewhere else):

Your PROTOCOL.INI file needs the following lines:
DriverNAme = PROTMAN$

DriverName = PKTDRV$
intvec = 0x60
chainvec = 0x66

DriverName = PCNTND$

Your \NETTCP directory needs the following files:
ssh2d386.exe (or some other ssh variant)

The top few lines of WATTCP.CFG probably need editing to fit your system

I edited my typo ... this is no longer needed .... but couldn't delete it.

chaninvec should be chainvec
