When connecting (for the first time) to a mosh server I get the following error message:

/usr/bin/mosh: Did not find mosh server startup message. <it then disconnects>

Server runs FreeBSD and the client is OS X. Any ideas?

Is mosh installed on the server? If you just normally ssh to the server and run "mosh-server", does it actually do something? (maybe it's not in your PATH?)

It's in my PATH. If I do that, this happens:

freebsd$ mosh-server

Warning: termios IUTF8 flag not defined. Character-erase of multibyte character sequence probably does not work properly on this platform.

However back on the OS X desktop, if I do the following:

osx$ export MOSH_KEY=cPiSdaPVTjKA/JQjy5jExg

osx$ mosh-client 60001

<it now starts connecting, but server side complains "Crypto exception: Packet failed integrity check.">
