SSH Tectia

Installing on HP-UX

SSH Tectia Client is available for:

  • HP-UX 11.11 on PA-RISC

  • HP-UX 11.23 on PA-RISC and Itanium

Keep the operating system fully patched. See the required patches under System Requirements. See the latest patch information on the Hewlett-Packard web site.

The downloaded online installation package contains the compressed installation files. On the CD-ROM, the installation packages for HP-UX platforms are located in the /install/hp-ux/ 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 the sshg3 program. You can also choose to install the optionally available FTP-SFTP conversion package and an additional SDK package which contains the file transfer API in C.

To install SSH Tectia Client on HP-UX, follow the instructions below:

  1. Select the installation package according to your HP-UX version.

    When installing on HP-UX 11.11 or 11.23 running on the PA-RISC architecture, select the following packages:

    ssh-tectia-common-<ver>-sd-11.11-pa-risc.depot.Z 
    ssh-tectia-client-<ver>-sd-11.11-pa-risc.depot.Z 
    

    When installing on HP-UX 11.23 running on the Itanium architecture, select the following packages:

    ssh-tectia-common-<ver>-sd-11.23-itanium.depot.Z 
    ssh-tectia-client-<ver>-sd-11.23-itanium.depot.Z 
    

    In the commands, <ver> is the current package version of SSH Tectia Client (for example, 5.3.8.123).

  2. Unpack the packages with gunzip. In order to be installable, the created packages must have the correct long file name:

    $ gunzip ssh-tectia-common-<ver>-sd-<arch>.depot.Z
    $ gunzip ssh-client-client-<ver>-sd-<arch>.depot.Z
    

    In the package name, <arch> is the version and architecture of the HP-UX operating system: 11.11-pa-risc or 11.23-itanium.

    (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:

    $ gunzip ssh-tectia-client-ft-only-<ver>-sd-<arch>.depot.Z
    
  3. Install the packages by running the following commands with root privileges:

    # swinstall -s <path>/ssh-tectia-common-<ver>-sd-<arch>.depot SSHG3common
    # swinstall -s <path>/ssh-tectia-client-<ver>-sd-<arch>.depot SSHG3client
    
    [Note]Note

    In the commands, <path> is the full path to the installation package. HP-UX requires the full path even when the command is run in the same directory.

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

    # swinstall -s <path>/ssh-tectia-client-ft-only-<ver>-sd-<arch>.depot SSHG3clntf
    
  4. (Optional with SSH Tectia Client with EFT Expansion Pack) Unpack the FTP-SFTP conversion package with gunzip:

    $ gunzip ssh-tectia-ftp-conversion-<ver>-sd-<arch>.depot.Z
    
  5. (Optional with SSH Tectia Client with EFT Expansion Pack) Install the FTP-SFTP conversion package with root privileges:

    # swinstall -s <path>/ssh-tectia-ftp-conversion-<ver>-sd-<arch>.depot SSHG3ftpconv
    
  6. (Optional with SSH Tectia Client with EFT Expansion Pack) Unpack the SDK package with gunzip:

    $ gunzip ssh-tectia-sdk-<ver>-sd-<arch>.depot.Z
    
  7. (Optional with SSH Tectia Client with EFT Expansion Pack) Install the SDK package with root privileges:

    # swinstall -s <path>/ssh-tectia-sdk-<ver>-sd-<arch>.depot SSHG3sdk
    
  8. (Not necessary in "third-digit" maintenance updates) Copy the license file to the /etc/ssh2/licenses directory. See Licensing.
