For the NT server side, you can install a replacement POSIX subsystem and the
GNU compiler. My personal favourite is U/WIN from ATT Labs - there is info out
there on getting GCC to work with U/WIN (see the U/WIN users list). With that,
one could compile SSH and then run it as a service. I've heard of it done, but
never done it.
NT Client side - there is DataFellows F-Secure, SecureTTY (both commercial), and
PuTTY (free, but does not do RSA auth).
SSH supports more than the algorithms you list - also IDEA (default) and ARCFOUR
(a implementation of RC4 (in theory) published to Usenet). Those are of course
just the symmetric cryptography; RSA is used for the asymmetric key exchange.
OpenSSH from the OpenBSD folks probably uses Diffie-Hellman for key exchange
(since RSA is patent restricted by US patent law until fall of 2000).
Your statement about location does not make sense - SSH is available from all
sorts of places, .fi and .nl, for example, which are not bound by US Export
restrictions. Don't download any crypto from us Americans - first of all our
Government needs their head's examined, secondly stronger crypto is available
