All of the instructions below assume that you have root access, and will work as the root user (either directly or using sudo).
The instructions on this page will replace the system provided OpenSSH packages with the Moonshot enabled ones (don't worry, standard SSH things will still work!)
Following the instructions on this page will give you a Moonshot-enabled OpenSSH Server only.
1. System Preparation
1.1. Add the Moonshot libraries
If you have not already done so, you first need to follow the instructions on how to Install Moonshot Libraries on a RHEL / CentOS / SL Server.
1.2. Enable the Moonshot OpenSSH Repository
The OpenSSH packages have their own dedicated repository, to avoid replacing system's one when not strictly required.
This repository needs to be manually enabled, by editing the
/etc/yum.repos.d/moonshot.repo file and setting
enabled=1 for the
1.3. Ensure that your hostname is correct
The channel bindings check requires that the hostname of your SSH server match the hostname people are SSHing to. That is, the output of the
hostname -f commands should match the FQDN of the server. If it doesn't, change the relevant line in
/etc/sysconfig/network to make it so.
2. Installation Instructions
Install the Moonshot-enabled pre-compiled OpenSSH packages using yum. This will replace the system-provided OpenSSH:
If you have already installed the latest version of OpenSSH from the CentOS updates repository and its version is either the same or is newer than the version in our repository, you must use the yum
downgradecommand to switch the packages to our version:
3. Configuration Instructions
Once installed, the Moonshot-enabled OpenSSH server will still need a few quick tweaks in order to turn on the Moonshot support.
Follow the configuration instructions on the OpenSSH Server page to configure the server.
