To answer you last question, yes.  So I think that answers your others.  
It isn't that you have to have 153 and 153, but if any protocol changes 
were present from 62 to 153 then they will not work together.  Even if 
there wasn't a protocol change from 62 to 153, then it is still *highly 
recommended* that they match to make it easier to identify real problems 
from version mismatch problems.
