Currently, PuTTY's choice of SSH protocol can only be expressed as a
preference. If you ask for an SSH-2 connection and only SSH-1 is
available, or vice versa, PuTTY will fall back to whatever it can

For security reasons we should also allow the user to specify "SSH-2
or nothing", so that if PuTTY couldn't make an SSH-2 connection it
would give up rather than fall back to SSH-1. For symmetry, we should
also support "SSH-1 or nothing", though that seems less obviously

Audit trail for this wish.
