SSH Tectia

Installing on Linux

SSH Tectia ConnectSecure 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 ConnectSecure and 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 APIs in C and Java.

To install SSH Tectia ConnectSecure 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 packages named:

    ssh-tectia-<component>-<version>-linux-x86.rpm
    

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

    ssh-tectia-<component>-<version>-linux-x86_64.rpm
    

    In the commands, <component> refers to the software component, and <version> indicates the product release version and the current build number (for example, 6.0.17-123).

  2. Install the packages with root privileges. In the 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-capture-<version>-linux-x86_64.rpm
    
  3. (Optional) If you do not want to install the sshg3 command, install the client-ft-only package instead of the client package:

    # rpm -Uvh ssh-tectia-client-ft-only-<version>-linux-x86_64.rpm
    
    [Note]Note

    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 transfer APIs in C and Java, install the SDK package with root privileges:

    # rpm -Uvh ssh-tectia-sdk-<version>-linux-x86_64.rpm
    
  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.
