Re: openssh on os400 or aix
AS/400's (running OS/400, presumably) can run AIX binaries? News to me
(but then my experience with AS/400's extends only as far as "I maybe
walked past one once" :-). Or did you mean "RS/6000"?
Anyway, for precompiled OpenSSH packages for AIX in lpp/bff format:
* IBM offer them, formerly at IBM DeveloperWorks, now Sourceforge:
* Bullfreeware offer some (although from a quick glance the versions are
Both of those will require that you install some prerequisite packages
(openssl and zlib packages from different sources, and possibly prngd).
* Last, and quite probably least, I offer prebuilt packages with the
It's not hard: unpack the openssl tarball, then:
$ ./config && make && make tests
If all goes well, you can then do a "make install".
That said, I've seen some problems with OpenSSH linked against recent
OpenSSL versions (> 0.9.7e), built with the default gcc configuration
(ie ./Configure aix-gcc) on AIX 4.x. I haven't pinpointed the cause.
It shows up as a regress failure during "make tests" in OpenSSH, and
seems to affect SSHv1 RSA operations.
I have had success with the following OpenSSL configure incantation:
$ ./Configure "aix-gcc:gcc -DOPENSSL_SYSNAME_AIX -DDSO_DLFCN \
-DHAVE_DLFCN_H -DOPENSSL_NO_KRB5 -O2 -DB_ENDIAN -D_THREAD_SAFE"

Good judgement comes with experience. Unfortunately, the experience
usually comes from bad judgement.
