Enabling diffie-hellman-group-exchange-sha1 support for SQL Connection

I am trying to sync between localhost mysql and a colocation (bluehost specifically) hosted mysql server. This is an older server that seems to be running RHEL 6. When I populate all the information in the setup panel, using either ssh password or sshe key based authentication I get the following error:

Can't connect to SSH server on 'xxxxx': Server does not support diffie-hellman-group-exchange-sha256 for keyexchange:

According to this stack exchange article I need to enable diffie-hellman-group1-sha1 on the client.

I'm not sure how to do that from mysqlcompare.
