OpenSSH is a freely available version of the SSH connectivity tools, and is the standard version of SSH used by many linux distributions. See http://www.openssh.org/ for more information.

1. Overview

No current version of OpenSSH currently natively supports moonshot, but patches are available for v5.3 and v5.9 of OpenSSH to fix the issues that stop it from working. Ultimately we hope that these patches will become a standard part of OpenSSH, so that OpenSSH will work without any extra work being necessary.
