Debian and OpenBSD -- ssh compatibility?

I'm configuring an OpenBSD firewall in front of my Debian box.  Current
problem is getting compatible versions of ssh on both boxes.

I can ssh FROM OpenBSD to Debian, but not TO OpenBSD from Debian.
Error message on attempting OpenBSD connection:

	Disconnecting: Bad packet length 1349676916.

...on the OBSD side, I get the following in /var/log/authlog:

	Jul 31 05:32:37 jung sshd[32168]: Protocol major versions differ for SSH-2.0-OpenSSH-2.1 vs. SSH-1.5-OpenSSH-1.2.3

I obviously need to get compatible versions of ssh, but I'm not sure
which end to even up, or (for the OBSD side) how to do it.  My
understanding is that OpenSSH 1.2.3 is licensed freely, that SSH-2 is
not, and that there isn't a free version of OpenSSH-2 available for
