We are running a consolidation project and are moving one of our applications from HP-UX to AIX 6.1.
One of the current interfaces relies on ssh-convert-ftp to translate a legacy FTP interface to SFTP
The current packages installed on the new target AIX host are
When I try to trigger a script which uses ssh-convert-ftp the following error message is reported:
As far as I understand the EFT (Enhanced File Transfer) expansion pack is needed (as per manual).
I somehow seem to recall that the FTP conversion functionality was dropped from later releases of Tectia (e.g. the above URL seems to be for release 5.3).
Can anyone confirm whether ssh-convert-ftp is still available / supported on the current releases of Tectia Client and whether that is now part of the base distribution or whether the EFT add-on is still required.
Any and all advice would be appreciated.
To my understanding ssh-convert-ftp script has been deprecated and replaced by ssh-capture in newer versions (I believe it is currently a link to ssh-capture script). It is part of ConnectSecure product. Here is the correct manual. However, the native ftp client on AIX is for some reason SUID application. Tectia has a special version of pre-load capture (suid-capture), but that only works with /bin/ftp and /usr/bin/ftp and nothing else. The ftp client must be a binary. Not a script. If 'ftp' is a script, then suid-capture may not correctly detect which version of ssh-cepture.so to load (32 or 64 bit).
The suid-capture lives in:
and it is only executed from ssh-capture. So this should work:
Providing you have the correct packages installed. I think it is in package: SSHTectia.Capture in version 6.2
