lost my ssh client after installing sshd


I'm a newbie to Linux administration. I recently got sshd running on my Mandrake box, but ever since then I'm unable to use the ssh client to connect to outside machines. And it was definately working before I got the sshd deamon up and running.

There is no ssh executable anywhere on my system, yet when I type "urpmi ssh" I get "Everything already installed". And when I type "ssh my.server" I get "bash: ssh: command not found".

Any advice? Sorry in advance if I'm missing something obvious ...

Thanks.

Very odd.

Try "urpmi openssh" and "urpmi openssh-clients".

Also, make sure that "echo $PATH" includes /usr/bin, but if it doesn't you'd be having much bigger problems, I suppose. Check if a file called ssh is in fact in /usr/bin, or something with a similar name.

Thanks very much "urpmi open ssh-clients" worked.

In general, how can I tell what my options are for rpm packages to install? In this case I didn't
know what to look for. Is there a nice interface (command line or web) for browsing or searching the packages available?

urpmi -y is search.

For example, to see all the ssh options, i used "urpmi -y ssh".

Or, in Mandrake control panel, under Software Management -> Install, you'll find a nice searchable graphical list of all the packages you can install.
