SSH Tectia


SSH Tectia Server requires a license file to function.

Each Server type (basic, EFT, and Tunneling) uses a license file of its own. Depending on the platform and the Server type you have purchased, you have one of the following files:

  • On Unix: tectia_server_52.lic, tectia_server_with_eft_52.lic, or tectia_server_with_tunneling_52.lic.

  • On Windows: sts52.dat (the contents of the file is different with each SSH Tectia Server type).

In the CD-ROM, the license files can be found in the install/<platform> directory.

After installation, the license file should be located in /etc/ssh2/licenses on Unix and in "<INSTALLDIR>\SSH Tectia AUX\licenses" on Windows (the default installation directory is "C:\Program Files\SSH Communications Security\SSH Tectia").

On Windows, when installing from the CD-ROM, the license file is automatically copied to the right directory. In other cases, the license file has to be copied manually.
