Ssh client = new Ssh();
client.Timeout = 1;
I expected this to timeout after 1 second, but it timed out after 5 seconds.
What is the problem?
The Timeout value doesn't apply to the whole method (Connect or other), but to its separate sub-operations (connect, exchange welcome messages, negotiate SSH session). To be able to tell what is going on and why we didn't time out earlier, a communication log would be needed - check out http://www.rebex.net/kb/logging.aspx for how to create one and either add it to your post or mail it to email@example.com
Also, please note that the Timeout value is specified in miliseconds, which means it should be set to 1000 to specify 1 second. However, 1000 is the lowest allowed value - if you set it to 1-999, it defaults to 1000 (1 second).
