SSH Tectia

Installing on Linux

SSH Tectia Client for Linux platforms is supplied in RPM (Red Hat Package Manager) binary packages for Red Hat Enterprise Linux and SUSE Linux. There are separate packages for Linux versions running on the 32-bit x86 and the 64-bit x86-64 platform architecture.

The downloaded online installation package contains the RPM installation files. 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 the sshg3 program.

With SSH Tectia Client with EFT Expansion Pack, the FTP-SFTP conversion package and the SDK package are also available. The SDK package contains the file transfer APIs in C and Java.

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

  1. Select the installation package according to your Linux version.

    When installing on SUSE or Red Hat Enterprise Linux running on the 32-bit x86 architecture, select the following packages:

    ssh-tectia-common-<ver>.i386.rpm
    ssh-tectia-client-<ver>.i386.rpm 
    

    When installing on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 running on the 64-bit x86-64 architecture, select the following packages:

    ssh-tectia-common-<ver>.x86_64_rhel3.rpm
    ssh-tectia-client-<ver>.x86_64_rhel3.rpm
    

    When installing on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 or 5 running on the 64-bit x86-64 architecture, select the following packages:

    ssh-tectia-common-<ver>.x86_64_rhel4.rpm
    ssh-tectia-client-<ver>.x86_64_rhel4.rpm
    

    In the commands, <ver> is the current package version of SSH Tectia Client (for example, 5.3.8-123).

  2. 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, <arch> is the platform architecture i386, x86_64_rhel3 or x86_64_rhel4.

    (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
    
  3. (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>.<arch>.rpm
    
  4. (Optional with SSH Tectia Client with EFT Expansion Pack.) Install the SDK package with root privileges:

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