SSH Tectia

Installing on Solaris

SSH Tectia Client is available for Sun Solaris on the SPARC architecture.

SSH Tectia Client includes support for Entrust certificates on Solaris 7 and 8. The necessary libraries are automatically included in the installation.

On the CD-ROM, the installation packages for Solaris are located in the /install/solaris/ 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. It contains the file transfer APIs in C and Java.

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

  1. Select the installation package according to your Sun Solaris version.

    When installing on Solaris versions 2.6 - 7, select the following packages:

    $ uncompress ssh-tectia-common-<ver>-sparc-solaris2.6-7.pkg.Z
    $ uncompress ssh-tectia-client-<ver>-sparc-solaris2.6-7.pkg.Z
    

    When installing on Solaris versions 8 - 10, select the following packages:

    $ uncompress ssh-tectia-common-<ver>-sparc-solaris8-10.pkg.Z
    $ uncompress ssh-tectia-client-<ver>-sparc-solaris8-10.pkg.Z
    
    [Note]Note

    In the examples below, we assume that you are installing on Solaris version 8, 9 or 10.

  2. Unpack the installation packages to a suitable place. The standard place is /var/spool/pkg in a Solaris environment.

    $ uncompress ssh-tectia-common-<ver>-sparc-solaris8-10.pkg.Z
    $ uncompress ssh-tectia-client-<ver>-sparc-solaris8-10.pkg.Z
    

    In the command, <ver> is the current package version of SSH Tectia Client (for example, 5.2.0.150).

    (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:

    $ uncompress ssh-tectia-client-ft-only-<ver>-sparc-solaris8-10.pkg.Z
    
  3. Then install the packages with the pkgadd tool with root privileges:

    # pkgadd -d ssh-tectia-common-<ver>-sparc-solaris8-10.pkg all
    # pkgadd -d ssh-tectia-client-<ver>-sparc-solaris8-10.pkg all
    

    (Optional with SSH Tectia Client with EFT Expansion Pack) For the ft-only package, the command is the following:

    # pkgadd -d ssh-tectia-client-ft-only-<ver>-sparc-solaris8-10.pkg all
    
  4. (Optional with SSH Tectia Client with EFT Expansion Pack) Unpack the FTP-SFTP conversion installation package:

    $ uncompress ssh-tectia-ftp-conversion-<ver>-sparc-solaris8-10.pkg.Z
    
  5. (Optional with SSH Tectia Client with EFT Expansion Pack) Install the FTP-SFTP conversion package with root privileges:

    # pkgadd -d ssh-tectia-ftp-conversion-<ver>-sparc-solaris8-10.pkg all
    
  6. (Optional with SSH Tectia Client with EFT Expansion Pack) Unpack the SDK installation package:

    $ uncompress ssh-tectia-sdk-<ver>-sparc-solaris8-10.pkg.Z
    
  7. (Optional with SSH Tectia Client with EFT Expansion Pack) Install the SDK package with root privileges:

    # pkgadd -d ssh-tectia-sdk-<ver>-sparc-solaris8-10.pkg all
    
  8. (Not necessary in "third-digit" maintenance updates) Copy the license file to the /etc/ssh2/licenses directory. See Licensing.
