Structural Biology SGI inst packages (tardist format)

These are packages we've built in-house with local customizations. Visit for lots more free pre-packaged software for the SGI platform.

These packages should work on systems with R4000 and newer processors which are running IRIX 6.2 or later.

OpenSSH 3.4p1 This inst package installs the OpenSSH binaries under /usr/local/bin and /usr/local/sbin and puts its configuration files in /etc/ssh. After installation, as root, run the included init script with the command "/etc/init.d/sshd start". This will generate your host keys for you (if they don't already exist in /etc/ssh), and start the sshd daemon on your system. Thereafter, the daemon will be started automatically at boot time.

IMPORTANT: You must create a user and group called 'sshd' in order for privilege seperation to work. Also, this package assumes you are not using shadowed passwords. If you are currently using them you will need to turn them off in sysmgr for this package to function properly.

If you are already running an older Structural Biology OpenSSH package this script will automate the upgrade for you including adding the privsep user.

tcp_wrappers 7.6 This package installs tcp_wrappers version 7.6. It will also install the configuration files /etc/inetd.conf /etc/hosts.deny and /etc/hosts.allow with reasonable defaults for machines on the Vanderbilt network. Pre-existing versions of these files will be backed up with a .O extension prior to being overwritten.
