SSH_keygen problem (fatal error)

Dear experts...

I'm configuring SSh on my Sun Solaris box 8. I've gone though everything for installation.

But When I try to generate keys I get this weird message which leaves me without
too many ideas as to how to fix it.

#/usr/local/bin/ssh-keygen -t rsa1 -f /usr/local/etc/ssh_host_key -N ""
ld.so.1: /usr/local/bin/ssh-keygen: fatal: libcrypto.so.0.9.7: open failed:
No such file or directory

I wonder if anyone has any ideas as to how to overcome this ???

libcrypto.so.0.9.7 is part of the openssl lib, you need to download openssl and install it.

you can get it from:

You cand also download the latest openssh binary package from the abouve site, please read the download doc, make sure that you install all the dependencies (eg: OpenSSL,
zlib, libgcc etc)
