2 SSH Tectia products can be installed directly on the server virtualization layer.

3 Requires the 31-bit compatibility library libc.so.6.

[Note]Note

Keep the operating system fully patched according to recommendations by the operating system vendor.

The supported operating systems are required to have the following or superseding patches or maintenance levels installed. The listed patches have been tested with SSH Tectia.

  • IBM AIX 5L 5.3: Technology level 10 (fix to AIX bug IDs IZ50489 and IZ14988). Note that these fixes are also available as service packs for some earlier technology levels.

  • IBM AIX 6.1: Technology level 3 (fix to AIX bug IDs IZ46727 and IZ17492). Note that these fixes are also available as service packs for some earlier technology levels.

  • IBM AIX 5.2 for user authentication using LDAP: correction to IBM technical support case IZ46727: PASSWDEXPIRED routine for LDAP user returns error

  • Microsoft Windows 2000: Service Pack 4

  • Microsoft Windows XP: Service Pack 2 and 3

  • Microsoft Windows Server 2003: Service Pack 2.

  • Microsoft Windows Server 2008: Service Pack 1.

  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and 5: xorg-x11-xauth is required for X11 forwarding

HP-UX patches

The general principle is to install the latest HP-required patch bundle for the OS version, currently required bundles exist for 11i v1 and 11i v2. Proper functioning of the SSH Tectia software also requires the latest HP recommended patches for libc, pthread and linker tools. In addition, some individual patches may be needed to fix specific problems. Such patches are mentioned separately.

[Note]Note

Check the HP web-site for any newer patches superseding the ones listed here. We recommend installing the latest version recommended by HP.
