Installing on HP-UX

Check that you have the operating system fully patched. See the latest patch information on the Hewlett-Packard web site. In case PAM/Kerberos is used on a HP-UX platform, install also the latest patches related to Kerberos.

The downloaded online installation package contains the compressed installation files.

On the installation disk, the installation packages for HP-UX platforms are located in the /install/hp-ux/ directory.

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

With Tectia ConnectSecure you may choose to install:

  • the basic client package

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

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

To install Tectia ConnectSecure on HP-UX, follow the instructions below:

  1. Unpack the downloaded tar package.

  2. Select the installation package according to your HP-UX version.

    When installing on HP-UX 11i v1 (11.11), 11i v2 (11.23), or 11i v3 (11.31) running on the PA-RISC architecture, use the packages named:

    ssh-tectia-<component>-<version>-hpux-11i-hppa.depot.Z 
    

    When installing on HP-UX 11i v2 or 11i v3 running on the Itanium architecture, use the packages named:

    ssh-tectia-<component>-<version>-hpux-11i-ia64.depot.Z 
    

    In the commands, <component> refers to the software component, and <version> indicates the product release version and the current build number (for example, 6.3.14.123).

  3. Unpack the packages with uncompress. In order to be installable, the created packages must have the correct long file name. In the examples below, we use the Itanium versions:

    $ uncompress ssh-tectia-common-<version>-hpux-11i-ia64.depot.Z 
    $ uncompress ssh-tectia-client-<version>-hpux-11i-ia64.depot.Z 
    $ uncompress ssh-tectia-capture-<version>-hpux-11i-ia64.depot.Z 
    
  4. Install the packages by running the install commands with root privileges:

    # swinstall -s <path>/ssh-tectia-common-<version>-hpux-11i-ia64.depot SSHG3common
    # swinstall -s <path>/ssh-tectia-client-<version>-hpux-11i-ia64.depot SSHG3client
    # swinstall -s <path>/ssh-tectia-capture-<version>-hpux-11i-ia64.depot \
                   SSHG3capture
    
    [Note]Note

    In the commands, <path> is the full path to the installation package. HP-UX requires the full path even when the command is run in the same directory.

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

    $ uncompress ssh-tectia-sdk-<version>-hpux-11i-ia64.depot.Z
    # swinstall -s <path>/ssh-tectia-sdk-<version>-hpux-11i-ia64.depot SSHG3sdk
    
  6. Copy the license file to directory: /etc/ssh2/licenses. (This is not necessary in "third-digit" maintenance updates.) For information on licensing, see Licensing.
