    I don't have a unix box at the moment so a friend copied sshd and plist on to my appletv from his mac but I'm having trouble getting in to it.

    I'm using putty to connect to the ip address, which seems like it connects initially but then I get the message box "server unexpectedly closed network connection".

    From a terminal the ssh command has a "-1" flag i.e. ssh -1 frontrow@appletv.local. Does putty need an additional setting?

    -1 flag forces ssh protocol version 1. Does putty have similar option or preference setting?

    thanks for the reply. I've found the setting on putty to force it to only use version one of ssh and it is now connecting.
