#9424 enhancement closed fixed (fixed)

conch should send a more detailed version string

At the moment, the software version string that conch sends to the remote server is always simply 'Twisted'. This means that servers can't include compatibility workarounds for bugs such as #9422. Like other clients (e.g. OpenSSH and PuTTY), conch should send something like 'Twisted_17.9.0' instead; the format is in RFC 4253, section 4.2.
