MACssh setup help

    I am not mac savvy.  I am trying to set up a mac client to
    connect w/ a red hat linux box.

    I'm getting the following error messages:

       lsh: Protocol error: Algorithm negotiation failed.
       Can't find a window for the port # in WindByPort
       Can't find a window for the port # in WindByPort

    each time I try to connect.  Is the lsh error the problem
    where lsh  keys are different than the ssh 2 keys?
    If so, it is not clear to me how to generate the
    compatible key on the mac. Nor is it clear how
    to tell macssh to use a particular key.

    I am passing no arguments to lsh.  Should I be?
    I just want a client tty connection.

    I have no idea what the WindByPort error is.

    Any help or hints would be appreciated.

      That's a problem in the OpenSSH 3.4p1 server that no longer supports zlib on some configurations. You need to disable the zlib compression in the Favorites->Edit->SSH2 tab.
