Connecting to other OSes

Plan 9 provides the usual complement of ftp, telnet, and rexec clients and servers though the servers require secure challenge/response authentication using either a securenet(8) card or a software simulation of it.

To enable ssh v1 under OpenSSH on a debian based Linux machine. First ensure the /etc/ssh/sshd_config file contains the lines:

Protocol 2,1
HostKey /etc/ssh/ssh_host_key
Then run the following commands as root:
ssh-keygen -t rsa1 -f /etc/ssh/ssh_host_key
chmod 644 /etc/ssh/ssh_host_key
/etc/init.d/ssh restart
No doubt other linuices are similar, but slightly different.
