SSH doesn't work for me

I can't SSH into my SUSE linux servers.  These are servers that I was previously using PUTTY to SSH into just fine.  PUTTY still works, as a matter of fact.  When I try Terminals, however, I get an amber cursor on a black screen, and nothing happens.  If I hit ENTER, the session disappears.  I honestly can't imagine what I'm doing wrong.  I know how to use SSH.  I'm specifying SSH v.2 and port 22 for the session.  If I try any other settings, Terminals tells me that it can't connect.  It feels almost to me like it's having trouble with the key exchange or something.  I never do get any dialogue about whether I want to accept the key for the host or not.  Any suggestions?  Thanks.

I'm willing to be the client library that I'm using doesnt handle the key exchange stuff either.  Very unfortunate. 

If only I could get my hands on a SSHv2 server with that security model in place.....

I have confirmed this behavior with numerous SSH v2 servers listening on both standard and non-standard ports.  Please let me know if there's anything I can do to help.

v1.7d did not seem to resolve any of these issues.

Give the latest build a try (within 1.7d).  I touched a bit of it up, including honoring alternative ports.

Thanks, Rob!  The new build is connecting perfectly now!  Nice job!
