SSH Tectia

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

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

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

  1. Make sure no other Secure Shell software is using port 22 (SSH Tectia Server default listen port). Stop any competing server software or change their listen port.

  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, select the following packages:

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

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

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

    In the commands, <version> indicates the product release version and the current build number (for example, 6.0.19.123).

  3. Unpack the installation packages with uncompress. In order to be installable, the created packages must have the correct long file names. In the following command examples, we use the Itanium packages:

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

    # swinstall -s <path>/ssh-tectia-common-<version>-hpux-11i-ia64.depot SSHG3common
    # swinstall -s <path>/ssh-tectia-server-<version>-hpux-11i-ia64.depot SSHG3server
    

    In the commands, <path> is the full path to the installation package.

    [Note]Note

    HP-UX requires the full path even when the command is run in the same directory.

    The server host key is generated during the installation. The key generation may take several minutes on slow machines.

  5. Copy the license file to the /etc/ssh2/licenses directory. (This is not necessary in "third-digit" maintenance updates.) See Licensing.

    If this is the initial installation of SSH Tectia Server, the directory does not yet exist. You can either create it manually or copy the license after the installation. In the latter case, you have to start the server manually after copying the license file.

  6. The installation should (re)start the server automatically.

    [Note]Note

    If the server does not start (for example because of a missing license or because some other secure shell software is running on port 22), you can start it after correcting the problem by issuing the command:

    # /sbin/init.d/ssh-server-g3 start
