RE: Problems exchanging data with remote server

Thanks for this patch. I've applied the patch but one chunk failed:

root@cbsdevl3://usr/developers/root/libssh-0.5.0#patch -p1 < patch1.txt
patching file src/channels.c
Hunk #2 succeeded at 885 (offset -8 lines).

      goto error;

-   rc = channel_open(channel, "x11", 64000, 32000, payload);

--- 2886,2896 ----
      goto error;

+   rc = channel_open(channel,
+                     "x11",
+                     CHANNEL_INITIAL_WINDOW,
+                     CHANNEL_MAX_PACKET,
+                     payload);


As the function ssh_channel_open_x11() does not appear in the libssh v0.5.0 code that I have here locally I take it that this chunk failing isn't a problem.

I've asked our customer to install the updated libssh.so.4.2.0 library that I now have created. I (or a colleague of mine as I will be going on a holiday in 2 days) will let you now the result once we have tested this patch.

Best regards,

Please test:


I've looked at the output of openssh. They use 0 as the first window and let 
it grow.

Normall you need a non-interactive shell:


or use the exec command:
