Cool ssh included with RH 6.2?


I try to use ssh with RH 6.2 and it doesnt work...(not even a man page..)

Is this something I should specify during installation, or should it come with the OS?

Check to make sure that the client version at least of OpenSSH is installed. It is the free version of ssh. Your best bet is to get either the source code or the rpm of the newest version since there have been security issues with older versions.

No...I dont have the openssh client.
I went to RedHat ftp site..but the only ssh I could find was in 7.0
(im running 6.2) It said I had the wrong version of RPM?

Do I change my RPM? or do I find a different SSH?

Go to www.openssh.com and download the source code and compile it yourself. Just read all the instructions. It really isn't that hard. The tar ball should contain a README or INSTALL file explaining how to compile but usually something like the following should work:

./configure
make
make install

You will need both the openssh and openssl packages. Also you will need zlib but I assume that has already been installed on your redhat system.

Not always (x.x.0 are often unstable/buggy), but with openssh it's true.

Not always and not in this case. You need the file
openssh-3.4p1.tar.gz

I went to Openssl.org...and did the same thing with that...
Because the /config stopped for ssh looking for ssl....so
I am now in the "make" stage of ssl...taking forever

(RH 6.2 - P166 32ram)

Yes, you need openssl, too. It's a different package. You can get it from www.openssl.org .And one more thing, maybe take older 0.9.6d, not the newest betas. So the filename is: openssl-0.9.6d.tar.gz .Openssh won't compile without openssl installed.

Im still in the "make" stage of ssl...taking 4-5 hours so far...
did I do something wrong..or do I just have this spanky little p166 with 32 ram to thank for it...

I dont see any errors....var/log/messages is clear...and the install seems to be churning away...putting things in different directories.

It is long, but not as long, I think. Once I was installing Openssh on 486 with 32MB RAM and it was the whole day. But if there are no errors, wait. It's near the end (well, Openssh left).

4 to 5 hours seems quite long. I seem to remember it taking only a few hours to compile on my 486 16mb ram. But I guess that all depends on how much you have running on the machine. You might want to run top and see how much swap space it's using. If it has to constantly swap memory to disk it could take quite a lot longer. But as long as it keeps going at it, it should be fine.
