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>
# 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]
