Hello people
I need help on sftp. ..I want to update openssh to openssh version 3.7.1, but all I can find is srpms, instead of plain ol rpms that I'm used to. I have virtually no knowledge of how to use srpm, but I did some reading and tried the command below :

rpm --rebuild openssh-3.7.1.src.rpm

But it gave me a '--rebuild : unknown option error'.

Can anyone give me some pointers, to get me started? Perhaps a link where I could learn about srpm. I'm using Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES release 3 (Taroon Update 1), kernel 2.4.21-9.0.1.ELsmp.

Thank you in advance,
