    Even if the -V option is not supported the first line of the error output will give the ssh version number.

    Also depends if you are talking about the ssh client or server versions.

    For client

    ssh -V

    will give you the info.

    For ssh server

    /usr/lib/ssh/sshd -?

    Note that the above assumes you have the Solaris supplied version of ssh, otherwise it maybe in /usr/local/sbin or similar location.

    I think I did not specify exactly on the one that I want :)

    I need to know the version of the opnessh that is currently installed on the Server.  Doing ssh -V will only show the below information.

    Sun_SSH_1.1, SSH protocols 1.5/2.0, OpenSSL 0x0090704f

    Accepted Solution

    SUNWsshr and SUNWsshu are not OpenSSH ... they are Sun SSH.  Sun SSH is based on OpenSSH but its not specifically a simple rebranded OpenSSH.  Sun has tweaked OpenSSH in various ways.
