Installing on Linux

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

With Tectia ConnectSecure you may choose to install:

  • the basic client package

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

  • the optional guisupport package for activating the graphical user interface on Linux

  • the additional sdk package containing the file transfer APIs in C and Java.

    [Note]Note

    The file transfer API in Java is available only for the 32-bit x86 platform architecture.

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

  1. Unpack the downloaded tar package.

  2. 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, 6.3.14-123).

  3. 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
    
  4. (Optional) If you want to use a GUI, install the GUI support package with root privileges:

    # rpm -Uvh ssh-tectia-guisupport-<version>-linux-x86_64.rpm
    
  5. (Optional) If you want the file transfer API in C, install the SDK package with root privileges:

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

    (The SDK package for 32-bit Linux contains the file transfer APIs in both C and Java.)

  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.
