OpenSSH problems with iLO ssh server

The OpenSSH client on my Ubuntu 7.10 system is incompatible with the ssh server on an iLO system with 1.91 firmware. There may be problems with other OpenSSH/iLO versions.

$ ssh -V
OpenSSH_4.6p1 Debian-5build1, OpenSSL 0.9.8e 23 Feb 2007

$ echo "QUIT" | nc iLO 22
SSH-2.0-mpSSH_0.0.1

$ ssh admin@iLO
admin@iLO's password: 
dispatch_protocol_error: type 100 seq 9
dispatch_protocol_error: type 100 seq 10
buffer_get_ret: trying to get more bytes 4 than in buffer 0
buffer_get_int: buffer error

As a workaround, use PuTTY.

Upgrading Firmware

In the following notes, "iLO" refers to iLO and iLO 2 unless otherwise noted.

To upgrade iLO firmware through the iLO HTTPS interface, download the Online ROM Flash Component for Windows, Extract the files, and Send firmware image of the appropriate firmware file (e.g., ilo191.bin). Note that wine for UNIX systems works with the self-extracting .exe file.
