Re: where can I donwload ssh for OpenVms 6.2

Nowhere, I'm afraid.
SSH requires VMS 7.2-2 and TCPIP 5.3 at least. I think it won't run on VAX either.

This is the location to read

http://h71000.www7.hp.com/openvms/products/ssh/ssh.html

(Another option but I have no experience with it: Get the sources and build from scratch. This won't be an easy task....)

Not free unless you are a hobbyiest, but I believe Multinet 4.4A will run on VMS V6.2 and has the SSH stuff included.

I forgot to mention, that I have heard Process also offers an SSH product besides the Multinet, but I do not know anything about that product.

I don't know about downloading, but Process Software's SSH product works with their own TCP/IP stacks as well as HP's UCX aka TCP/IP Services. See

http://www.process.com/tcpip/sshsolutions.html

To get your IP stack version number try

$ tcpip show version

or

$ ucx show version

or

$ multinet show/version

If you don't need SSH 2.0, you may find older, simlpler implementations that you can get up and running. See

Eric,

To check your TCPIP version:

$ UCX SHOW VERSION

It's likely to be 4.something. From 7.3 onwards, VMS uses a port of Tru64-TCPIP. Beware of differences....

Re: where can I donwload ssh for OpenVms 6.2

I tried the SSH for 5.3 and it stinks.
And for the better version I should upgrade, what I am not going to do (too much work).
Also check http://h71000.www7.hp.com/openvms/products/ssh/ssh.html

It would be nice of HP to support the working version on lower versions of VMS (5.4 + 7.3-1 is needed).
