I'm trying to ssh into devices with Hummingbird Exceed + Secure Shell Pack. Exceed lists four authentication types for SSH (Use Entered Password/Keyboard Interactive/Use Selected User Key/Kerberos).

On the other hand, Keyboard Interactive does't work with Cisco devices (both CatOS/IOS). I have to revert to Use Entered Password. Here's the verbose Exceed log of the failed attempt SSH login attempt to a Cisco device, with Keyboard Interactive/Use Selected User Key/Kerberos checked, and Use Entered Password unchecked. Does it mean Cisco's SSH implementation permits "tunneled clear text passwords" by default (as cautioned by OpenSSH above)? If so, any way to have the devices disallow that?
