SSH test - better version

The Simon built-in SSH test worked, but flooded server logs with error messages like:

Bad protocol version identification 'open'

Illegal protocol version

protocol version not supported in local

I edited the SSH service, and changed the first "then send:" field from 'open' to 'SSH-2.0-Simon', which satisfies the protocol version identification step in the SSH protocol.

See http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc4253.txt , section 4.2 Protocol Version Exchange.

Re: SSH test - better version

Thanks! I'll update the default SSH service accordingly.
