ssh - sshd
« on: October 30, 2022, 06:58:59 pm »
I want to set up a ssh server on my system. I've not much experience with SSH until now. I installed the openssh packages (yum install openssh-servers ..) but can't start the daemon.

I tried all combinations with or without path like p:\usr\sbin\sshd.exe or P:/usr/sbin/sshd.exe ... but I get always -
Code: [Select]
sshd re-exec requires execution with an absolute path

Anyone running successfully an ssh server on OS/2?

Hi Andi,

 Just tried it myself and got the same result (no previous experience here either). Strangely enough, the last commit by Sylvan on the 'openssh-portable' BWW github site had to do with absolute paths on OS/2 (March 9, 2021). So my guess is it wasn't enough (or not released in a binary). Probably worth filing a bug report...

Regards,

Dave Yeo

It seems to me that only a certain EMX build really worked, at least without too many dependencies. IIRC, EMX had better terminal support as well.

I do use ssh(d) on my machines to connect to/from.
Rewrote a rexx script for an earlier release for setup (installation, configuration and various program icons).
I have the new version installed, but use the previous until the new one behave as expected.

Which version are you using? ssh --version might be informative
