	ssh 1.2.26 (at least) has a "no commercial use" license.

	read ssh-1.2.26/COPYING, particularly the following text:

	(b) You may use the program for non-commercial purposes only, meaning
that the program must not be sold commercially as a separate product,
as part of a bigger product or project, or otherwise used for
financial gain without a separate license. Please see Section 2,
Restrictions, for more details.

Use by individuals and non-profit organizations is always allowed.
Companies are permitted to use this program as long as it is not used for
revenue-generating purposes. For example, an Internet service provider is
allowed to install this program on their systems and permit clients to use
SSH to connect; however, actively distributing SSH to clients for the
purpose of providing added value requires separate licensing.  Similarly,
a consultant may freely install this software on a client's machine for
his own use, but if he/she sells the client a system that uses SSH as a
component, a separate license is required. If a company includes this
program or a derivative work thereof, as part of its product, commercial
licensing is required.
