summary: Support setting environment variables in SSH-2
class: wish: This is a request for an enhancement.
difficulty: fun: Just needs tuits, and not many of them.
priority: low: We aren't sure whether to fix this or not.
fixed-in: 2004-10-17 0.56 (0.58) (0.59) (0.60)

SSH-2 has a mechanism for the client to set random environment variables on the server (the env channel request). Currently we don't support this.

Last time we looked, we weren't aware of any SSH servers that bothered to support this, but that was a some time ago now.

(The SSH-1 protocol doesn't support this at all.)

Update: we now support this, although we still don't know of any SSH servers that do.

Audit trail for this wish.
