Installing OpenSSH 2.3 UNIX
In the hint on fixing the security hole in SSH, one of the possible solutions was to install OpenSSH 2.3. No detail was provided on exactly how to do this, however! I had thought this link was already posted on the site somewhere, but a quick search failed to find it ... so I'm posting it now (again?).

To install OpenSSH 2.3, head on over to, and follow the excellent page of instructions written by Scott Anguish which will walk you through the process.

I have not built OpenSSH 2.3 on my machine, so you're on your own to see if it actually works. I'm sure it does, but I haven't tested it myself yet.

tips for OpenSSH install
Authored by: Anonymous on Feb 13, '01 11:23:04AM
Hello, I have done several installs of OpenSSH 2.3.0 following the directions on stepwise. It works nicely but I have learned a few things. First type in your commands don't cut and paste. Some of the commands can get mangled and fail to work. You also may want to create your own startup scripts instead of using the one already in osx. I did this to be sure that I was starting the correct SSH server. If there is interest I may combine the stepwise directions with my tips and extra scripts. Or if I am really ambitious write a complete installer script.
