Compression Support

Reported by: keith@scott-land.net Owned by: alamaison
Priority: minor (e.g. uncommon, cosmetic, has workaround) Milestone: 0.6.x Bug sprint
Component: backend Version:
Keywords: compression Cc:


Hi, Been trying to get Swish working today and have realised from our WinSSHD error logs that compression was the reason that key exchange wasn't working. Allowed uncompressed connections and swish was able to work.

On a wikipedia page about ssh clients they seemed to mention that swish supported compression but I can't see any settings for this.

At the moment, compression is stuck 'on' because the underlying library, libssh2, didn't provide a way to turn it off. The latest release does provide this but we're avoiding it because of other issues. Once these are fixed we can upgrade to the newer version and disable compression.
