            Bug ID: 2250
           Summary: SOCKS5 should return "NO ACCEPTABLE METHODS" instead
                    of nothing
           Product: Portable OpenSSH
           Version: -current
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P5
         Component: ssh
          Assignee: unassigned-bugs at mindrot.org
          Reporter: guenter at weheartwebsites.de

Search for: "SSH_SOCKS5_NOAUTH not found"

If a connection to SSH-SOCKS5 is established and a unsupported auth
method is sent, SSH will not reply anything.

According to http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc1928 the server could (it
does not state if the server MUST or SHOULD, hence "could" ;) ) send
simply X'FF' NO ACCEPTABLE METHODS - with this a client can do
appropriate handling.

Would like to hear your thoughts if I am misinterpreting rfc1928, or I
should just suck it up and handle cases like this with my client.
