Question OpenSSH

Help! SSH is returning the following error message:

OpenSSL version mismatch. Built against 90581f, you have 90602f

How can I correct this?

Question OpenSSH

By the way, I did download OpenSSH 3.1, which was just released on Thursday, but I have no idea what do do with it. The command line


does nothing, and the command line

sh install-sh

runs into trouble with the "C compiler." Does anyone out there have the foggiest notion of what's going on? As far as I know, my system has all of FreeBSD 4.4 as part of its subsystem, so these scripts/programs/whatever shouldn't have trouble, right?[B]

Do you have the latest GNU compiler (GCC) installed?

Question OpenSSH

I'm guesing not. I've got a mostly stock Mac OS X 10.1.3. How can I check?

IMHO ....

Actually if you are running FreeBSD, the easiest way to do these kinds of updates is to synchronize your ports tree.

Here are some instructions on how to do that.

After that you simply do:

1. cd /usr/ports/security/openssh

2. make

3. make install

4. make clean

And you should be all set (assuming that your DSA/RSA and host keys were already configured).

Of course, if you have problems with compilation, you also may have to update your gcc which I believe is under /ports/lang (I am not 100% sure, but since you have 4.4, you should be fairly current on gcc).

One more thing to look for: old crypto files, they may be
lurking around under /usr/lib.

Good Luck! Of course, remember to come back and share with us your solutions Smilie

Data OpenSSH

D'oh! The below was pasted from the command line:

[msp-??-???-??:~] root# cd /usr/ports/security/openssh
/usr/ports/security/openssh: No such file or directory.
[msp-??-???-??:~] root# cd /usr
[msp-??-???-??:~] root# cd /usr/ports
/usr/ports: No such file or directory.

No ports directory! Smilie

OK that's no problem, you can just create /usr/ports as root yourself and follow the link I suggested to download and build (if you wish).

Again, the assumption is that you have a FreeBSD Unix machine, the procedures for an OSX install may be somewhat different.

Also, check to ensure that you do not have 2 different versions of libcrypto libraries, it may be picking up the old one.
