SSH Tectia

Installing on Linux

SSH Tectia Client for Linux platforms is supplied in RPM (Red Hat Package Manager) binary packages. The RPMs are available for Red Hat and SUSE Linux running on Intel x86 (i386) platforms. The package for the x86 architecture is compatible also with the 64-bit versions of Red Hat and SUSE Linux running on x86-64 platforms.

On the installation CD-ROM, the installation packages for Linux are located in the /install/linux/ directory. Two packages are required: one for common components of SSH Tectia Client and Server, and another for specific components of SSH Tectia Client. With SSH Tectia Client with EFT Expansion Pack you may choose to install either the full client package or the client package without sshg3.

With SSH Tectia Client with EFT Expansion Pack, an additional SDK package is available on Intel x86 platforms. It contains the file transfer APIs in C and Java.

To install SSH Tectia Client on Linux, follow the instructions below::

  1. Install the packages with root privileges:

    # rpm -Uvh ssh-tectia-common-<ver>.<arch>.rpm
    # rpm -Uvh ssh-tectia-client-<ver>.<arch>.rpm

    In the commands, <ver> is the current package version of SSH Tectia Client (for example, and <arch> is the platform architecture (i386).

    (Optional with SSH Tectia Client with EFT Expansion Pack) If you do not want to install the sshg3 command, use the client-ft-only package instead of the client package:

    # rpm -Uvh ssh-tectia-client-ft-only-<ver>.<arch>.rpm
  2. (Optional with SSH Tectia Client with EFT Expansion Pack) Install the FTP-SFTP conversion package with root privileges:

    # rpm -Uvh ssh-tectia-ftp-conversion-<ver>.i386.rpm

    Note that the FTP-SFTP conversion is not supported on 64-bit Linux.

  3. (Optional with SSH Tectia Client with EFT Expansion Pack on x86.) Install the SDK package with root privileges:

    # rpm -Uvh ssh-tectia-sdk-<ver>.i386.rpm
  4. (Not necessary in "third-digit" maintenance updates) Copy the license file to the /etc/ssh2/licenses directory. See Licensing.
