SSH Tectia

Installing on Solaris

SSH Tectia Client is available for Sun Solaris 8, 9, and 10 on the 32-bit SPARC architecture and for Solaris 10 on the 64-bit x86-64 architecture.

SSH Tectia Client includes support for Zones on Solaris 10. The SSH Tectia software can be installed into the global and local zones. When the SSH Tectia software is installed into the global zone, it becomes automatically installed also into the existing local zones. However, SSH Tectia Client needs to be separately installed into local zones added later into the system. For instructions, see the Sun Microsystem documentation: System Administration Guide: Solaris Containers-Resource Management and Solaris Zones.

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

The downloaded online installation package contains the compressed installation files. 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 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 Solaris, follow the instructions below:

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

    When installing on Solaris version 8, 9 or 10 running on the 32-bit SPARC architecture, select the following packages:

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

    When installing on Solaris version 10 running on the 64-bit x86-64 architecture, select the following packages:

    ssh-tectia-common-<ver>-x86_64-solaris10.pkg.Z 
    ssh-tectia-client-<ver>-x86_64-solaris10.pkg.Z 

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

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

    $ uncompress ssh-tectia-common-<ver>-<arch>.pkg.Z
    $ uncompress ssh-tectia-client-<ver>-<arch>.pkg.Z
    

    In the commands, <arch> is the platform architecture sparc-solaris8-10 or x86_64-solaris10.

    (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>-<arch>.pkg.Z
    
  3. Install the packages with the pkgadd tool with root privileges:

    # pkgadd -d ssh-tectia-common-<ver>-<arch>.pkg all
    # pkgadd -d ssh-tectia-client-<ver>-<arch>.pkg all
    

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

    # pkgadd -d ssh-tectia-client-ft-only-<ver>-<arch>.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>-<arch>.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>-<arch>.pkg all
    
  6. (Optional with SSH Tectia Client with EFT Expansion Pack) Unpack the SDK installation package:

    $ uncompress ssh-tectia-sdk-<ver>-<arch>.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>-<arch>.pkg all
    
  8. (Not necessary in "third-digit" maintenance updates) Copy the license file to the /etc/ssh2/licenses directory. See Licensing.
