Software News   Software News : OpenSSH 4.6p1-1
   posted by ssolie on 14-Aug-2007 16:53:25 (2146 reads)
An updated version of the OpenSSH tools are now available for Amiga OS 4.0 users.

Download it from OS4Depot and give it a try.



Changes from the previous version:
- ported changes from official 4.6p1 baseline which fixes the "bad kex alg diffie-hellman-group-exchange-sha256" issue with MacOS X for example
- now uses $HOME instead of HOME: for finding files (thanks Martin Steigerwald)
- found a workaround for the crash when using -L with ssh until clib2 has a fixed isatty() function (thanks Farbod Fahimi)

does it now work when trying to (say) do a further ssh or su when you've already ssh'd into a server?

Regards

Mark

Nice work!

Okay, the question that must be asked: Why only the client side tools? Is it "only" a matter of the time at hand, or are there technical or other issues preventing the server side from being ported?

Best regards,

Niels

I could try porting sshd but I just didn't need it and nobody asked for it either. It is pretty rare that people need to use ssh between all their Amiga OS boxes.

Excellent!

This should fix the problem that I reported with ssolie's first release (i.e. bad kex alg diffie-hellman-group-exchange-sha256 when talking to my openSuSE linux boxes).

Most excellent! Thanks Steven!

I compiled OpenSSH/OpenSSL on GeekGadgets including sshdeamon.
Problem is, that the deamon uses fork() which I mapped via a define to vfork().
This way I could compile the package including the clients, but IIRC the deamon would not work this way...

None of my ports use fork() or vfork(). When I see a fork() I study the code and understand what it is trying to do and replace it with Amiga OS function calls.

I'd be very interested in that.

I'm not planning to "use ssh between all my Amiga boxes", but since my A1 is running 24/7 and to an extent acts as server here in the LAN, it would be nice to be able to log into that from the other machines (Linux, Windoze, lesser Amigas) in a safer way than a plain old telnet. (Cue a number of people waving garlic and crosses telling me that AmigaOS isn't safe anyway etc. etc. I know.).

Best regards,

Niels
