appears that sftp is not there too.
Is that normal? Is sftp a part of an other package?

After you install openssh-*-2.5.2p2-1.7, check to see if sftp works. If you
can't make a connection, check /etc/ssh/sshd_config -- all the way to the bottom

"/usr/libexec/openssh/openssh/sftp-server"). Confirm the location of the
sftp-server and make sure it conforms with the location specified in the
I checked sshd_config and it is OK for me, there are no problems (now I use
openssh-2.5.2p2-1.7). Thanks anyway for the warning.
