How do I find out which version of Secure Shell is running at the remote host machine I am trying to connect to?

How do I find out which version of Secure Shell is running at the remote host machine I am trying to connect to?

The simplest way is to use the telnet command. To do this:
  • Open a command window
  • Type Telnet 22
  • Wait for result once the connection has been established.


The response you should get will be similar to the screenshot below. In this example we are using SSH version 1 as shown by the starting characters SSH-1 whereas version 2 will start with SSH-2.
