On Solaris you'd probably need to start by getting the sources (http://www.ssh.org/ or http://www.openssh.com/). Thenfollow the instruction for which ever you choose to coonfigure, complie, and install it.

http://www.ssh.org/ is the best place to start, however...  They do not yet support SOLARIS 8!

I have the commercial version of their SSH, and it does not contain any packages for Sol 8, I went into the Solaris 7 stuff tho, and compiled it for the 8 box, worked like a champ.

WARNING:  I am currently using V2.013 not V2.1.0 because the clients insisted on using SecureFTP by VanDyke (makers of Secure CRT as well) and those clients DO NOT SUPPORT the v2.1.0 sshd.

You have to pay attention to not only the sever, but the client.  I recoemend using SSH's software for both sides.
