Default Chrooted SSH/SFTP need help

Hello, I've installed a Debian Etch base system and am following a tutorial I found on here to install ssh so i can use putty. I'm getting the following error when I run this:
wget http://chrootssh.sourceforge.net/dow...chroot.tar.bz2
tar xvfj openssh-4.5p1-chroot.tar.bz2
cd openssh-4.5p1-chroot
./configure --exec-prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc/ssh --with-pam
make
make install

error states : wget unrecognized option '--exec-prefix=/usr'

can anyone help me with this please?

Thank You

dc

You can try this:
Quote:
./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc/ssh --with-pam

Leszek doesn't want you to change the wget command. What he means is: change this command:
Code:
./configure --exec-prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc/ssh --with-pam
to this one:
Code:
./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc/ssh --with-pam

thank you for the reply falko I've ditched this install and started over I have used your Perfect Server tutorial for Debian Etch and also installed ISPConfig and all has went well...thank you. I'm having a problem though with logging into my pop3 server from my windows xp client using outlook. Should I start a new thread or post the last 100 lines from /var/log/mail.log here?

thanks again!

Start a new thread and post the errors from your mail log there.
