Product : Fedora Core 3
Name : openssh
Version : 3.9p1
Release : 8.0.1
Summary : The OpenSSH implementation of SSH protocol versions 1 and 2.
SSH (Secure SHell) is a program for logging into and executing
commands on a remote machine. SSH is intended to replace rlogin and
rsh, and to provide secure encrypted communications between two
untrusted hosts over an insecure network. X11 connections and
arbitrary TCP/IP ports can also be forwarded over the secure channel.
OpenSSH is OpenBSD’s version of the last free version of SSH, bringing
it up to date in terms of security and features, as well as removing
all patented algorithms to separate libraries.
This package includes the core files necessary for both the OpenSSH
client and server. To make this package useful, you should also
install openssh-clients, openssh-server, or both.
This update changes default ssh client configuration so the trusted X11
forwarding is enabled. Untrusted X11 forwarding is not supported by X11
clients and doesn’t work with Xinerama.
* Mon Feb 21 2005 Tomas Mraz 3.9p1-8.0.1
- enable trusted forwarding by default if X11 forwarding is
required by user (#137685 and duplicates)
- remove the syslog call from sigalarm handler as syslog is
not signal handler safe
* Mon Oct 4 2004 Nalin Dahyabhai 3.9p1-8
- add a –enable-vendor-patchlevel option which allows a ShowPatchLevel option
to enable display of a vendor patch level during version exchange (#120285)
- configure with –disable-strip to build useful debuginfo subpackages
