Installing the Tectia SSH Assistant ISPF Application

The Tectia SSH Assistant (SSZASST) ISPF application provides an interface for installing and configuring Tectia Server for IBM z/OS and its client tools. It is designed to simplify the process of installing the product tar archive appropriately and performing the multiple configuration tasks required using traditional MVS tools (ISPF and JCL), without requiring the use of the Unix shell.

  1. On the z/OS host, receive the Tectia SSH Assistant data set via the following command (replace the XXXX in the XMIT file name with the correct build number):

    TSO RECEIVE INDSN(SSZASST.V060603.BXXXX.XMIT)

    In response to the RECEIVE prompt, you may enter the usual parameters to control the creation of the received data set, or just press enter to take the defaults and create a data set called prefix.SSZASST.PDS.

  2. Inside the restored data set you will find a Rexx script called $RECEIVE. EXEC the script to set up the application libraries:

    TSO EXEC 'prefix.SSZASST.PDS($RECEIVE)'

    This Rexx will prompt for the HLQ under which the application libraries are to be set up, as well as optional VOLSER, if needed.

  3. Press Enter repeatedly to page through the command output.

  4. Set up the Tectia SSH Assistant application to be invoked:

    TSO EXEC 'prefix.SSZASST.CEXEC(SSZ)'
