Unable to connect to HP ILO board with firmware version 1.94, when using openssh 5.1p1-41.31.36.
The following message is displayed:
debug2: channel 0: open confirm rwindow 1048576 rmax 2048 Received

This issue is only seen on SLES11-SP1 with openssh version 5.1p1-41.31.36. You can workaround this issue by doing either of the following:
  • Downgrade to an earlier version of openssh.
  • Downgrade the firmware on the HP ILO board to any version earlier than 1.94.
