It works for me on 

As you might know, the version that you are using is in frozen stable
and no updates other than security fixes will be accepted, so there is
nothing I can do about it. Moreover it is no longer supported by the
developers, so your best bet would be to upgrade.

If it still does not work, post the strace output after trying to
connect to the said host and port:

1) Start mc
2) ps aux | grep mc (find the $PID to use in next step)
3) strace -o mc-ssh.log -e trace=execve -F -f -p $PID
4) Try to connect to the server
5) cat mc-ssh.log
Sincerely yours,
