Re: OenSSH & SSL

Short answer:

Yes.

 

It is very much advisable to use some form of SSH instead of legacy protocols like telnet, rsh/rlogin or FTP.

OpenSSL is a good SSL/TLS/generic encryption library and toolkit if you need one.

 

Longer answer (trying to guess what you actually meant to ask):

 

HP officially supports a version of OpenSSH for HP-UX, called HP Secure Shell.

It is available for free at software.hp.com, but may not always up to date with the latest OpenSSH version:

OpenSSL is also available for free from software.hp.com:

https://h20392.www2.hp.com/portal/swdepot/displayProductInfo.do?productNumber=OPENSSL11I

 

The Porting Archive may have newer versions of OpenSSH and OpenSSL already built as depots for HP-UX, but these are not officially supported by HP and the quality of the porting and packaging work may sometimes vary. But if you need the absolutely-latest version, this might be a good place to get them easily for HP-UX:

Re: OenSSH & SSL

Your system should have a "template" of a startup script in /sbin/init.d/template.

Copy it, and edit the copy to make it start /usr/local/sbin/sshd.

 

See also the rc(1m) man page on your system (run "man rc" to view it). The first chapter (titled DESCRIPTION) describes /sbin/rc, the master sequencer script that is started by init and starts all the daemon startup scripts.

The chapter titled "Start and Kill Scripts" and everything after that describes how the startup scripts (like /sbin/init.d/template) are used and what are the requirements for them.

Re: OenSSH & SSL

If you had downloaded HP's port of OpenSSH then you would not have to worry about setting up your own stop and start scripts as the installation will do that for you.

 

HP's SSH is available here:
