I was looking for this in the specs, where exactly does it say this?

Perhaps. But since the server in question is documented to only speak SSH 1.5,
it is also very likely that the server simply doesn't speak SSH2 properly.

I guess one way to find out is to either read the Fressh source code or
possiblt set one up to run tests against. Their official web site at seems to be dead. The most recent version I could find
using is from 2005[*]. It makes me suspect this software is not
very actively maintained...

I downloaded the latest version I found on (0.8.1), and it failed
to compile pretty badly so I don't consider it a worthwhile effort to go down
that path.

Until we see a problem with a different server, I will remain suspecting this
is a problem related to Fressh.
