Hello, I have id_dsa and id_dsa.pub file, I do not want ssh client to read id_dsa.pub file, instead extract public file from the id_dsa private key  while doing key exchange, what parameter should I use with ssh client or put in 'config' file ? Thanks!

what is the affect of order of keeping the Protocol number in sshd server config file and ssh client config file

#grep Pro /etc/ssh/ssh_config
Protocol 2,1
#grep Pro /etc/ssh/ssh_config
Protocol 1,2

#grep Protocol /etc/ssh/sshd_config
Protocol 1,2
#grep Protocol /etc/ssh/sshd_config
