I am working on a project where we need to create a secure connection
between a Solaris server 9 and a Windows 2000 server using encryption.
We were thinking about connecting OPENSSH on Solaris 9 to Tectia
Server 4.1.3 on Windows.
Our Unix admin says the OPENSSH on Solaris 9 is not compatible with
Tectia Server on Windows, however, I have not found any evidence to
support his accumption. Both should a support SSH1, SSH2, SCP, and
various encryptions such as 3DES, AES, etc.
Has anyone Connected OPEN SSH on Solaris 9 to Tectia Server 4.1.3 (or
similiar version) on Windows. Do we have to buy the Tectia Client for
Solaris to connect to my Tectia Server 4.1.3 on Windows.
Could I be missing the boat, perhaps a better solution exits?

It depends on exactly what you mean by "compatible." They both speak the
same protocol, and you can certainly log into a Tectia/Windows server with
an OpenSSH client. They do have different feature sets though; for
example, Tectia supports X.509 certificates for autentication, and OpenSSH
does not. So you could create configurations in which they would not
interoperate, e.g. if the server only offered a host key with certificate
(type x509v3-sign-rsa), OpenSSH could not handle that and the connection
would fail. But correctly configured, they are perfectly compatible.
