QtCreator’s SSH connection should accept ver 1.99 because it is compatible with 2.0
According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Secure_Shell#Version_1.99 [en.wikipedia.org] : “SSH server which supports both 2.0 and prior versions of SSH should identify its protoversion as 1.99”.
And according to http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc4253 [tools.ietf.org] : “Clients using protocol 2.0 MUST be able to identify this as identical to 2.0”.
QtCreator accepts only version 2.0 returned from the server while 1.99 should work fine as well.

Yes but I wanted to check first maybe there is a reason why QtCreator does like that.
