This is not exactly true. It would depend on your definition of commercial

If you read the licensing of SSH2 you'll discover that they redefined what
they consider to be commercial use.

The license states:

"NON-COMMERCIAL USE shall mean the following uses of the SOFTWARE:

a) any use done outside and without connection to a commercial
organization and commercial activity,

b) use related to leisure time activities by private individuals,
including hobbies, games, etc. provided however that such use is not
commenced with commercial companies.

Uses not considered as NON-COMMERCIAL USE include, but are not
limited to:

a) any use where commercial activity is involved and where the use
in any way, directly or indirectly, aims at monetary or other
commercial benefit,

b) any use that takes place in commercial, governmental, military,
or similar organizations and where a salary or similar monetary
compensation is paid, unless the use can be considered to be
EDUCATIONAL USE or is purely for charity."

jonathan stated they he wished to use SSH2 to get files from work. This
activity would violate the SSH2 agreement.
