I have been asked to setup ssh on an AIX 5.2 machine that will have about 90 remote clients connecting continuously
we run a telnet client called smarterm witch supports ssh. So how do I go about setting ssh up I have very little experience
with aix.

so any help would be appreciated

You have to download OpenSSH server from IBM http://www-03.ibm.com/servers/aix/products/aixos/linux/download.html or BULL http://www.bullfreeware.com

Then make it run just like on Linux ( inittab is boot script)

You could also install from the Linux Toolbox CD.
You need to install both ssl and ssh modules.

Installation program from IBM or BULL will do it for you.
"find / -name ssh_host_key" command will reveal location of ssh host keys and config files.
Only place you will need to create certificate ( called "key" in SSH) is when you need to establish publickey (e.g. passwordless) login

"man ssh_keygen" details that but feel free to ask if you think you have problems or just doubt if you are right.

Openssh has a requirement for openssl.  You will need to get it from the same place you get openssh.  The installation process is RPM based and the automated installation will create the necessary certificates for you.

There was another Q by same asker, that basically resolved to OpenSSL install rejecting due to missing perl.rte ... Not sure how much that contributed to silent solution here...
