Are these available on the command line?

I rely on X11 forwarding and I'd expect that others do too, so just setting these lines isn't something that you'd want to do in general I assume...

Actually, we've found that when attempting to SSH to a Cisco server, you can add the following lines to your SSH2_DIR:SSH2_CONFIG (note, the config for the client, not server):

allowx11forwarding no

These should allow you to talk to the router properly using our client (which, of course, is used by the SFTP client).

We found that even trying to SSH to the Cisco router (for console access) produced something similar. It seems their SSH server code is broken -- and
SFTP relies on SSH to set up the secure TCP session.
