I am trying SSH communication between SSH server and SSH client. I am using demo examples which are attached to the library. Whatewer SSH client I am testing (there are more), I always get error 6 Packet composed incorrectly and connection is not established. If anybody knows the reason or how to solve this problem, I will be very grateful.

Thanks a lot,

Please install the latest version of SecureBlackbox ( 4.4.94). 4.3 is a bit outdated.

Also, you need to setup the server when running it -- create users, setup server key etc..

Have you generated a keypair for your SSH server? Keypair is absolutely necessary for the server to be able to establish secure connections.
