Package: openssh-client
Version: 1:5.8p1-2
Severity: grave
Tags: sid
Justification: renders package unusable

After upgrade to 1:5.8p1-2 ssh fails to connect to some servers.
Last messages shown in -vvvv mode :
debug3: order_hostkeyalgs: prefer hostkeyalgs:,,ssh-rsa
debug1: SSH2_MSG_KEXINIT sent
Read from socket failed: Connection reset by peer

Unfortunately I have no root access to the remote server and cannot see the 
remote logs

Downgrading to 1:5.5p1-6 resolves the problem.

--- End Message ---
--- Begin Message --- This bug report is 11 years old now and for a very old version of openssh. Also the original reporter appears to be connecting to a remote server with version string "OpenSSH_4.3p2-hpn" which appears to be some HP-UX version. Other reports don't provide enough info to be sure they are related and the linked Ubuntu bug is totally crazy with unrelated stuff.

Closing this, if you are reading this because some internet search for a problem you are having brought you here, feel free to file a new bug if A) you are using Debian, B) you have tested with a current version, and C) you provide plenty of details. :)
