Tectia

Installing on Linux

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 always required: one for the common components of Tectia Client and Server, and one for the specific components of Tectia Client. If you want to use the product with a graphical user interface (GUI), install also the optional GUI support package.

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

  1. Unpack the downloaded tar package.

  2. Select the installation package according to your Linux architecture.

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

    ssh-tectia-common-<version>-linux-x86.rpm
    ssh-tectia-client-<version>-linux-x86.rpm
    ssh-tectia-guisupport-<version>-linux-x86.rpm
    

    When installing on SUSE or Red Hat Enterprise Linux versions running on the 64-bit x86-64 architecture, use the packages named:

    ssh-tectia-common-<version>-linux-x86_64.rpm
    ssh-tectia-client-<version>-linux-x86_64.rpm
    ssh-tectia-guisupport-<version>-linux-x86_64.rpm
    

    In the commands, <version> indicates the product release version and the current build number (for example, 6.2.5.123).

  3. Install the packages with root privileges. In the command examples below, we use the x86-64 version:

    # rpm -Uvh ssh-tectia-common-<version>-linux-x86_64.rpm
    # rpm -Uvh ssh-tectia-client-<version>-linux-x86_64.rpm
    # rpm -Uvh ssh-tectia-guisupport-<version>-linux-x86_64.rpm
    
  4. Copy the license file to the /etc/ssh2/licenses directory. (This is not necessary in "third-digit" maintenance updates.) See also Licensing.
