Subject: Incompatible with Sun's SSH: ssh: illegal option -- M
Hi there, On Solaris: $ uname -a SunOS zaqar1 5.10 Generic_138888-05 sun4u sparc SUNW,Sun-Fire-V490 $ ssh -V Sun_SSH_1.1.1, SSH protocols 1.5/2.0, OpenSSL 0x0090704f Even though everything got correctly installed, I get an error when running "atnodes" "ssh: illegal option -- M" Cheers, ^m'e
I am not the author or a maintainer, but I can see that the documents do in fact say:

Sun's ssh evidently doesn't support the multiplexing feature, or at least the -M option. I would guess from the docs that if you were able to install the OpenSSL binary, you could use the SSH_BATCH_SSH_CMD environment variable to use it instead of the default one supplied by Solaris, and everything would work.
