Since I only found this thread when googling for "Technical details: No algorithm compatible with the remote system's selection was found:" ...

There seems to be problem with openssh 6.7 upwards and cryptlib 3.4.2.

http://forums.apc.com/spaces/7/ups-management-devices-powerchute-software/forums/general/1785/openssh-v6-7-received-disconnect-handshake-failed/1#6079

My program used to work perfectly using synapse and cryptlib to connect to an ssh server, until I upgraded my Linux distribution. Reverting back to openssh 6.6 solved the problem for now. Maybe this info will be usefull to someone

"The probably easies workaround for now is to force the use of MD5 to make SSH request only a 3076 bit DH key.

This can be done using the "-m hmac-md5" command line flag or "MACs hmac-md5" config option."

WTF? Chillingly bad advice. Don't use that.
