The commercial SSH still works fine on Linux and usually plays well.  I
use it exclusively on my desktop, laptop, and firewall systems.

To ssh from a commercial SSH client (from ssh.com and which is open source
on Linux) to an OpenSSH server, do:

     ssh -o 'AllowedAuthentications password'

Going the other direction can require some fiddling and scp sometimes is
cranky, requiring something like:

     ssh -t foobar.com "dd of=foo.tar.gz" < foo.tar.gz

&gt; Also, I want to add that the commercial unix ssh package has different 
&gt; command line switches than OpenSSH.  Mixing the clients and servers has 
&gt; led to strange situations that can really get puzzling to figure out 
&gt; what is going on.  Safest option is to do a ssh -V to check on what your 
&gt; working with on the client side.  I've had different versions of each 
&gt; package work well or not at all together too.  Just a warning since the 
&gt; commercial version has a much better security history than OpenSSH.  
&gt; However, since OpenSSH plays well on Linux and the newest commercial SSH 
&gt; package doesn't seem to at all, I've been trying to figure out just what 
&gt; works.  I may wind up with strictly OpenSSH on all the machines in the end.

&gt; &gt;&gt;You know. I find it very rare nowadays for someone to say they're 
&gt; &gt;&gt;wrong. It's such a simple thing to do, and very humble.

&gt; &gt;It's easy when you have to do it alot. :)
