Subject: Compression does not work with Openssh 4.3p2
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 590b
I am trying to connect with Net::SFTP to a Fedora Core 5 server which has Openssh 4.3p2 installed. With the "compression => 1" option, it fails with: No matching comp found: client zlib server none, at /dp/usr/imb/perl/lib/Net/SSH/Perl/ line 89 It looks like openssh 4.2p1 introduced a new delayed compression method identified by "". It is possible to change newer versions to support the old method by setting "Compression yes" in /etc/ssh/sshd_config. It would be nice if Net::SSH::Perl could support the new delayed compression mechanism.
Please use Net::SSH2 for new code (or provide a tested, minimal patch for Net::SSH::Perl).
