unable to upgrade openSSH on RH6.2

I am running a comuter which is used as a firewall. I want to upgrade OpenSSH to the latest version. I tried by downloading RPMs however, it keeps of failing due to dependencies. Perticularly GLIBC related dependencies. I do not want to disturb this computer as I am afraid of screwing up my firewall. Is there any one who can help me and guide me with this upgrade?

You will most likely need to update a lot of dependencies or at least install the upgraded one's along with the existing ones.

I can't remember what came with Redhat 6.2 but I do know you will also need updated ssl packages, glibc, and most likely a few others.

Try building OpenSSH from source. I am not really familiar with the requirements to build it, but you should be able to even if it does require a few tricks. Then disable the existing OpenSSH daemon and use the locally built one instead.
