Understand PATH

I'm new to unix so sorry for the confusing question.
I installed OPENSSL following these instructions.
Installing OpenSSH Packages - SPARC and Intel/Solaris 8

I need to run this command, "openssl req -newkey rsa:1024 -keyout -out req.pem" from a keyreq folder I created.

How do I add openssl to my PATH so that I can run it from anywhere?

here is the output:

# openssl req -newkey rsa:1024 -keyout -out req.pem
bash: openssl: command not found

thanks again.

Sunfreeware installs openssl in /usr/local/ssl/ so your PATH to the binary would be:

Actually what I was supposed to get was something like this:

[root@server keyreq]# openssl req -newkey rsa:1024 -keyout -out req.pem
Generating a 1024 bit RSA private key
writing new private key to ''
Enter PEM pass phrase: ENTER A PASSPHRASE
Verifying - Enter PEM pass phrase: ENTER PASSPHRASE AGAIN

I got nothing, it didn't create the files or ask me anything.
I tried it again and received an error:
openssl req -newkey rsa:1024 -keyout -out req.pem openssl: fatal: open failed: No such file or directory

I'm on solaris 10, I couldn't find instructions for solaris 10 so I used the solaris 8 instructions. but used solaris 10 packages.
This is the package I actually used.


from here.
Freeware List for Solaris 10 - x86

I also installed gcc-3.4.6-sol10-x86-local.gz because it said it was required.

solaris 10 has all packages on board... remove the new packages with "pkgrm" and add /usr/sfw/bin to you path and try again with the "openssl" command.
