Re: upgrade SSH

Hi Chindi ,

first extract the tar in a newly created directory , using the command tar xvf , there you will find a README , please go thru it and you will get your answer.

Re: upgrade SSH

is it a redhat system?

I would backup the ssh*_config file in /etc/ssh
and the host key before the upgrade

Re: upgrade SSH

If it's RH or Fedora, you should be able to do a yum update or up2date on RHEL5


Be specific as to the Linux you are using as installation methods vary.

Re: upgrade SSH

the kernel Id doesn't say what Distro you are using, Ubuntu, Redhat, Fedora, SUSE, etc, will all have a bit different way of doing things.

For Fedora using yum is fairly simple.

# yum update ssh

for Ubuntu
apt-get update ssh

these are the top two.

Re: upgrade SSH

In some cases you can do:

cat /etc/issue
or
cat /etc/release

and that will tell you which distribution you have.
