I need to enable SSH version one on my server for testing reasons. I understand all the risks, but still need to be able to do it. I have edited the /etc/ssh/ssh_config file to remove the # before the line Protocol 2,1 and changed it to Protocol 1, yet it still gives me an error saying the major versions differ when I log on.

Is there something I am leaving out here? I’m using Fedora 16 to connect to an SSH server on another Fedora 16 machine with the command ssh -1 <ip-address> to connect. Also, my ~/.ssh/config file is empty.

You need to edit the sshd_config file to configure the server.
