Unhappy DH_GEX_REQUEST error on connect

My IT guys have set me up on CentOS when I try to connect with SecureCRT 5.1 (company has yet to pay for upgrade), I see the following in /var/log/secure.
Apr 1 20:49:27 svr3236-vm1-sip sshd[2168]: fatal: DH_GEX_REQUEST, bad parameters: 1024 !< 2048 !< 2046

I have searched on the internet, but no luck in finding a solution. Not sure if the fix is on the Linux or the client side.

Hi sjames1958,

You may want to check upgrade eligibility here.

Every license purchase includes either 1 year (only 1-year licenses were available circa version 5.x) or 3 years of access to technical support and updates. It is possible you could be using a slightly newer version.

As to the reported issue, see this post.
