Playing around with OpenSsh, trying to connect to Sonic, a local ISP (the
shell.sonic.net server). I can connect normally with the command $ ssh -l
<username> shell.sonic.net and it works, but when I try to modify the
/etc/ssh/ssh_config (host config file for ssh) the file does not seem to
take effect. For instance, I tried a new Host declaration to
shell.sonic.net, with the User (username) so that I do not have to type the
user name in every time, but it did not work. Even putting this User under
the general Host * did not work; after typing the command $ ssh
shell.sonic.net it prompted me for email@example.com's password rather
than my user name password. I know the Sonic ISPdoesn't accept SSHv2
connections (why not... another topic) and I am using SSHv1 but has anyone
messed around with the /etc/ssh_config file to any degree of success,
especially with the User property?

Re: SSH_Config problem
Normally, you would put this sort of personal modification in the per-user
config file (~/.ssh/config), rather than the global one.
Anyway, check what file locations your copy of OpenSSH was compiled with.
People sometimes unwittingly install a version compiled with
prefix=/usr/local, so that it's looking for
