I believe I was told that there are some theoretical weaknesses with
protocol 1? And since ssh.com uses 2 by default shouldn't this be the same
Also, in another case of the default isn't really the default:
# StrictHostKeyChecking no
The default is actually yes if it's commented out (and I believe this one
should be yes even though I always turn it off manually :-) ) so the conf
file should be changed?
