VM Explorer 7.1.003

After upgrading to VMware ESXi, 6.7.0 (Build 17167734), VM Explorer cannot connect to ESXi using SCP/SSH.

Workaround:

1. On the ESXi add the following line to /etc/ssh/sshd_config:
KexAlgorithms diffie-hellman-group-exchange-sha1,diffie-hellman-group14-sha1,diffie-hellman-group1-sha1

2. Restart the ssh service:
/etc/init.d/SSH restart

We need a code change in VM Explorer to reflect this change, so that it is no longer required to edit the sshd_config file on the ESXi Server.
