Hack:   Remotely Log In to Another Machine via SSH
Subject:   a little tweaking required

I am an osx box connecting to a windows server: the suggested command for opening the connection is:
% ssh -1 <username> <hostname.whatever>
this did not work for me, what did work was:
ssh -1<username> <hostname.whatever>

and so this worked. but it won't take my password as is, even though i know it works.
Any suggested syntax to make this work?

    The proper syntax is "ssh -l" (lower case L) rather than "ssh -1" (the number 1) followed by your username and hostname. Hope this helps.
