Title: openssh 6.8p1
Post by: Michael on March 24, 2015, 08:23:42 PM
This just in - well 6 days ago...

OpenSSH 6.8 has just been released. It will be available from the
mirrors listed at http://www.openssh.com/ shortly.

OpenSSH is a 100% complete SSH protocol version 1.3, 1.5 and 2.0
implementation and includes sftp client and server support.

Once again, we would like to thank the OpenSSH community for their
continued support of the project, especially those who contributed
code or patches, reported bugs, tested snapshots or donated to the
project. More information on donations may be found at:
http://www.openssh.com/donations.html

More follows real soon on www.rootvg.net and www.aixtools.net/index.php/openssh

This new version of OpenSSH for AIX - based on OpenSSHv6.8p1 - will install beside an existing AIX openssh.base installation (which you can later remove).

The key requirement is AIX 5.3 TL7 as lowest supported level AND openssl.base-0.9.8.1101

I have been using this myself on *.rootvg.net - and I have not had any issues with it.

Just follow the link: http://www.aixtools.net/index.php/openssh If you have any additional concerns - please post here.
