SSH Tectia

Installing on AIX

SSH Tectia ConnectSecure is available for IBM AIX 5L version 5.3 (with maintenance level 5) on the POWER architecture.

The downloaded online installation package contains the compressed installation files. On the CD-ROM, the installation packages are located in directory /install/aix/.

Two packages are required: one for common components of SSH Tectia ConnectSecure and SSH Tectia Server, and one for specific components of SSH Tectia ConnectSecure.

With SSH Tectia ConnectSecure you may choose to install:

  • the basic client package or the client-ft-only package without the sshg3 program

  • the optional capture package for FTP-SFTP conversion and transparent tunneling

  • the additional sdk package containing the file transfer API in C.

To install SSH Tectia ConnectSecure on AIX, follow the instructions below:

  1. Unpack the installation packages:

    $ uncompress ssh-tectia-common-<version>-aix-5.x-powerpc.bff.Z
    $ uncompress ssh-tectia-client-<version>-aix-5.x-powerpc.bff.Z
    $ uncompress ssh-tectia-capture-<version>-aix-5.x-powerpc.bff.Z

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

  2. Install the packages by running the following commands with root privileges:

    # installp -d ssh-tectia-common-<version>-aix-5.x-powerpc.bff SSHTectia.Common
    # installp -d ssh-tectia-client-<version>-aix-5.x-powerpc.bff SSHTectia.Client
    # installp -d ssh-tectia-capture-<version>-aix-5.x-powerpc.bff \ 
  3. (Optional) If you do not want to install the sshg3 command, unpack and install the client-ft-only package instead of the client package with root privileges:

    $ uncompress ssh-tectia-client-ft-only-<version>-aix-5.x-powerpc.bff.Z
    # installp -d ssh-tectia-client-ft-only-<version>-aix-5.x-powerpc.bff \ 

    If you later need to start using the sshg3, you must first uninstall the client-ft-only package before you can install the client package.

  4. (Optional) If you want the file transfers API, unpack and install the SDK installation package with root privileges:

    $ uncompress ssh-tectia-sdk-<version>-aix-5.x-powerpc.bff.Z
    # installp -d ssh-tectia-sdk-<version>-aix-5.x-powerpc.bff SSHTectia.SDK
  5. Copy the license file to directory: /etc/ssh2/licenses. (This is not necessary in "third-digit" maintenance updates.) For information on licensing, see Licensing.
