            Bug ID: 2814
           Summary: Connection error should report failure instead of
           Product: Portable OpenSSH
           Version: 7.6p1
          Hardware: All
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: minor
          Priority: P5

Suggested diff

When the connection fails, the error handling reports success if no
was provided, as this defaults to 0 (Success). As this can never be the 
case when an error occurs, instead the output should show a failure.

Forced example:
ssh -6 -b vyatta at 2000::4
getaddrinfo: Address family for hostname not supported
ssh: connect to host 2000::4 port 22: Success
