Gong exits with cryptic error on SSH login failure #127

On Cisco IOS in some cases (perhaps OS version):

Connecting to device1.  Use ^X to exit.

Fetching credentials from /home/jathan/.tacacsrc

Connection failed for the following reason:

Protocol error: expected packet type 61, got 50



Most likely the router disconnected unexpectedly. Packet 50 (in SSHv2) is
SSH2_MSG_USERAUTH_REQUEST, meaning request for user authentication.
Sometimes, if the credentials are wrong, IOS immediately disconnects instead of
letting you try again

This should be detected as a login failure by Trigger and prompt you to fix your credentials.
