You should not enable the none cipher in the base OpenSSH code as it is
a serious security problem. The data you are sending might not be worth
encrypting but your authentication should *always* be encrypted. If you
do want to use the none cipher in a safer way you should get the HPN-SSH
patch from http://www.psc.edu/networking/projects/hpn-ssh. This patch,
in addition to some other things, re-implements the none cipher but
maintains secure authentication. There is a caveat in that you cannot
use the none cipher in interactive sessions - its only for bulk data

You'll need to read the HPN12-README file to learn how to use it.
