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 "" /usr/local/bin/ssh-keygen: fatal: open failed:
No such file or directory

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