-bash: ssh.keygen: command not found


Trying to configure git which requires that I generate a SSH key using
Code:
ssh.keygen -t rsa -C "myname@emailid.com"
I get the message -bash: ssh.keygen: command not found

After doing some google search, I installed openssh using yum, but that did not help. I also tried yum install ssh-keygen with no success.

Can anybody assist or point me in right direction?

Thanks

Code:
ssh.keygen -t rsa -C "myname@emailid.com"
Github help indicates ssh dash keygen; not ssh dot keygen

It should be
Code:
ssh-keygen
Is the openssh package installed?
