Sorry to interfere, but finally I find someone talking about my problem.
I encountered the very same problem with a mix of Gentoo/Ubuntu/Debian
machines whereas I could not connect from my Gentoo Box (5.8p1) to any
machine behind the firewall in the wild (Debian; 5.1p1). But connecting to
a Ubuntu box right next to me within the very same subnet and then SSH from
this very machine to a machine outside worked. I also could connect to any
machine inside the subnet from my Gentoo/5.8p1.

# MACs hmac-md5,hmac-sha1,umac-64 at openssh.com,hmac-ripemd160
--- >8 snap ---
worked like charm. I finally can SSH again to my machines behind the
Thanks for this workaround.
