Question OpenSSH

Do the make commands need to be followed by a file path such as

make /users/[username]/desktop/ssh

which is the directory where the ssh components are?

Sorry for all the questions--I'm a UNIX virgin, even though I used to sit in front of an Oracle 7.3.4 on AIX 4.1.3 box. I only used Oracle commands, not UNIX.

Sorry that's not what I meant, when I said that a ports tree needs to exist on your machine. I am not sure how things work on an OSX machine.

You have to use "cvsup" program to build your entire ports subdirectory and then you automatically get /usr/ports/security/openssh.

Again click on this link for directions on how to do that. I am assuming that you ARE Unix savvy. Maybe we should take all this offline with you posting an outcome at the end Smilie

Question OpenSSH

In the humble opinion of, well, anyone, does the following directory contain the current GNU Compiler for BSD 4.4? If so, which one?

not to cut you all short....

Go here

download the patch (I believe it to be the updated version for your OSX install

Run the command it gives you at the site under the download for the patch

Be happy with OSX.

If you really want to get crazy with OSX, get another box and put Darwin on it, there are a TON of cool things to do with the underlying OS without the constraints placed on you by Aqua. There is GCC and all the rest, and if you aren't comfy with the patch because of the source, please go to and check under the OSX area for the latest news on the SSH bug, they are usually pretty good and happy to help (in a general sort of customer-on-my-webiste sort of way).

Error OpenSSH

Finally something in UNIX that actually RUNS. Not to say that it fixed the problem, but it actually DID something when I typed in the command line. Not to be hypercritical of the system, but does anyone know how to install the GCC and SSH? When I type in ./install, I get a message saying that permission was denied, even if I'm running the Terminal application as root; ./configure runs fine until it tries to use cc to create an executable; then it tells me that cc can't do that. People, I really am very interested in this sort of thing, and appreciate every bit of information I can get my hands on. I'm frustrated by the fact there is NO novice-level information available regarding specific, well, archives, or whatever the appropriate term is for the files I've downloaded.
