Question Issues while installing ssh on AIX 5.3

This is the history of my problem.

I am trying to copy a folder with all its sub-directories from one AIX server to another.So I read here that I can use rsync.When I ran the command

rsync -aruv localfolder/ user@server:destination/
I am getting following errors

PHP Code:
rsyncFailed to exec sshNo such file or directory (2)
rsync errorerror in IPC code (code 14at pipe.c(84) [sender=3.0.7]
rsyncconnection unexpectedly closed (0 bytes received so far) [sender]
rsync errorerror in IPC code (code 14at io.c(601) [sender=3.0.7
So I dont have ssh on my machine.So I download it from

here.Now when I am trying to untar it on the server I am getting following error.

tar: directory checksum error (0 != 68490)

I searched it on the net and found this but this is not helpful.

Can some one help me out here.

I'd say it's a bad tar file.

Everything you need to install ssh on AIX is in you other thread. The ssh libraries are precompled by IBM and are on the Expansion pack CD or available for download, it's best to get them from IBM.
