Installing SSH Tectia Server from the Source Code

If pre-compiled binaries from SSH Communications Security are not available for your particular Unix or Unix-like platform (such as Tru64), you can compile the source code yourself.

The source code is available separately upon request. Please contact SSH Tectia technical support at http://www.ssh.com/support/contact.

In order to compile the source code, you need the following:

  • an ANSI C compiler (gcc is available from the Free Software Foundation's GNU project, http://gcc.gnu.org)
  • development libraries for your operating system.

Copy the source package to your machine. Then run the following commands (note that make install must be run with root privileges):

$ gzip -dc ssh-<v>.tar.gz | tar xvf -
$ cd ssh-<v>
$ ./configure
$ make
# make install

You can enable or disable certain functionality when you compile SSH Tectia Server. To use the optional functionality, make sure you use the following syntax:

$ ./configure --[option]

The most common configure options are listed below, but additional options not listed here are also available. Type ./configure -- help for more information.
