how to install SSH and start it in QNX?


The easiest way is probably to download the source from the
networking project:

Build it as per the wiki page: … urce_Guide

Run it as any other ssh.


I have compiled the code,Could you tell me how to start SSH?I don’t use it before

when I use “ssh start” or “ssh”,there’s some error message “unknow symbol”

This could be because a dynamic library that was expected to have the symbol does not. The name of the symbol can be helpful.

unknow symbol _res_state
unknow symbol _getshort
unknow symbol _getlong
could not resolve all symbols

These are in the 6.4 libsocket or the libsocket that
you built. See the “How do I use what I built?” section here
or run it on 6.4: … urce_Guide


Does it only run on 6.4?how can I use it on 6.3.2?There are several error during compiling.

If you want to run it on 6.3.2 you have to run it against the libsocket
you built. As per my previous post, please see the “How do I use
what I built?” section. … urce_Guide


sorry,I have read it,but I can’t understand it,Could you tell me the step I should do?thank you

I have installed SSH in my system,but when I start sshd,it reports “PRNG IS NOT SEED”,???

If I’ve built the entire networking tree to a staging
directory as per here: … urce_Guide

and I want to run from my stage, I use a script
like the following (my stage is /home/seanb/svn/stage):

cat ~/bin/st

#! /bin/sh



export PATH=/home/seanb/svn/${STAGE}/x86/bin:


which ssh

which: no sst in /proc/boot:/bin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/usr/sbin:/usr/pkg/bin:/usr/pkg/sbin:/opt/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/qnx632/host/qnx6/x86/usr/bin:/usr/qnx632/host/qnx6/x86/usr/sbin:/usr/qnx632/host/qnx6/x86/sbin:/usr/qnx632/host/qnx6/x86/bin:/usr/qnx632/host/qnx6/x86/usr/photon/appbuilder:/home/seanb/bin:/usr/photon/bin:/usr/photon/appbuilder:/opt/X11R6/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin

st which ssh


This works for ssh proper but there’s some components
that look to the root so depending on your usage you
may have to copy the results of your build from your
stage to the corresponding location under /. You’ll probably
still heve to set up LD_LIBRARY_PATH as above when
running them to pull in the right libsocket:

You probably aren’t running the ‘random’ manager (no /dev/random).
