Use of strong ciphers / MAC algorithms (wodSSH / wodSSH.NET)

Hi,

Thank you for your reply! It is very appreciated.

I have a follow-up question. When looking at the server in shodan.io it lists hmac-sha1 and hmac-md5 as the available mac algorithms.

When looking at the wosSSH Help - HMac list I see that more secure algorithms are supported. Does this mean that the server is running an outdated version and should be updated if we want to use for example hmac-sha2-256-etm@openssh.com ? Since we cannot add new ones.
