This bundled 'quick-start' set of packages to make installing ssh/sftp easier - was the end result of having to install ssh/sftp on a large number of systems. In short - an easier way than to fetch and move all the required files was necessary.
The solution was to create a MPE/iX 'store-to-disk' format file in Reflecton 'wrq' Labels format to simplify the install process.
In short, just download the 'quick-start' package to your PC, transfer the file to your target 3000 via Reflection 'Labels' format, and then do a MPE/iX Restore to put the components into the /tmp directory your server.
At that point, just pick up at Step 3 of the installation instructions graciously compiled and hosted by Beechglen Development, Inc. In case these become unavailable, try the copy I've set aside here.
One of the 'additional requirements' mentioned in Step 3 is that DNS be properly configured. I've found that Mark Bixby's 'dnscheck.sh' (shell script to verify and/or diagnose issues w/DNS setups - including describing what must be done to fix whatever is found to be wrong).
If you have questions or problems with the install - I'll do what I can to help, but I didn't port the 'bits and pieces', I just assembled them into a convenient form. email any install questions here.
If you have questions about how to integrate sftp or scp into existing processes or applications, feel free to contact me via my consulting company (see sidebar for link to website and here's my company: email I'll be happy to discuss a possible consulting engagement appropriate to satistify your needs)
