On HPUX and Linux servers this line works fine

Ciphers aes128-ctr,aes192-ctr,aes256-ctr,arcfour256,arcfour128

On solaris10 give me error

/etc/ssh/sshd_config line 155: Bad SSH2 cipher spec 'aes128-ctr,aes192-ctr,aes256-ctr,arcfour256,arcfour128'

I'm sure ssh on solaris support those ciphers

  • Ssh -v on both gives? – Drav Sloan Mar 23 '15 at 23:00

arcfour128 and arcfour256 are not supported by Sun SSH on Solaris 10.


ssh -c arcfour256 somehost

You'll likely get: Unknown cipher type 'arcfour256'

You will need to remove them from your Ciphers list. Alternately, install OpenSSH if you really need them.
