If you did the wget assignment and did not include openssl, please recompile wget. If you did not do the wget assignment previously, then you must do install wget now, before starting on the curl and openssh assignments.


The documentation for a BLFS installation of openssh is at http://linuxfromscratch.org/blfs/view/stable/postlfs/openssh.html. Please do not install any of the optional packages.

Once you have finished installing and configuring, use the bootscripts to set up sshd to start each time that you boot the machine.

Testing: I will test your ssh by attempting to login to a remote machine. I will also use your local testuser to login to your BLFS machine to test ssh and sshd.


The documentation for a BLFS installation of curl is at http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/blfs/view/stable/basicnet/curl.html.

Do not install any of the optional packages for curl, but you of course must have already installed openssl and the certificate authority certificates from the previous assignment.

I will test your curl installation with both the suggested tests on the installation page running as your testuser account.
