The libssh2 package is part of the rhel-$(uname -m)-server-6 repo in RHEL6.
You seem to be using RHEL 5 (or older).

So either you compile yourself, or use a 3rd party repo like repoforge.org

To add that one single libssh2 package (might need additional deps):
rpm -Uvh http://pkgs.repoforge.org/libssh2/libssh2-1.2.9-1.el5.rf.$(uname -m).rpm

Open in new window

To add the whole repo and libssh2:
rpm -Uvh http://pkgs.repoforge.org/rpmforge-release/rpmforge-release-0.5.2-2.el5.rf.$(uname -m).rpm
yum install libssh2

Open in new window


If you are infact using RHEL6 your box is not registered to RHN correctly.
