Larsin, do you have the gcc compiler installed? You should be able to install it (and related tools) from the install discs.

Hakan,

Thanks for the reply...that was it lol. I have now ran the ./config, make, make test, make install and make clean commands. Everything seems to have worked. The only thing I need to do now, is actually verify and utilize SSL/SSH.

I am assuming I also need to put the correct version on our AIX server, then the option will be available? Does this also work for email?

What option are you talking about...?
In order to use applications with OpenSSL they usually need to be compiled with SSL support.

Let me rephrase that and clarify further lol.

My machine has Suse 9.0 and Win2K on it. The install of SSL/SSH so far has been done only on my Suse 9.0 side. I have not installed the SSL/SSH on the AIX server yet, but will shortly. I will test the Suse to AIX connections afterwards.

The next part is where my question comes in:

I also want to be able to use the SSL/SSH when I'm in Win2K connecting to the AIX machine. I would like to set up more Windows clients to connect securely to the AIX machine, but do not know if cross-platform is an option or not. Would I have to use the OpenSSL/SSH on the AIX side configured with puTTY on the Windows side?

The other question was do I need another product to encrypt emails, or would this also work?

If you set up OpenSSH on the AIX server you will be able to connect to it from pretty much any platform using an SSH client like the already mentioned PuTTy or Cygwin in Windows.

OpenSSL is a set of libraries that provide the Secure Sockets Layer and also TLS, Transport Layer Security. OpenSSL can be utilized by other programs (FTP clients and server, etc) - if they support it - to provide secure communication between the server and the client.

There are several email servers that support encryption using SSL/TLS. If you run Exim, here is the relevant part of the documentation and here is the relevant part from the FAQ. Most modern email clients support encryption, among those are Mozilla Thunderbird, Pine and Sylpheed.
