    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:
    tar xvfj openssh-4.5p1-chroot.tar.bz2
    cd openssh-4.5p1-chroot
    ./configure --exec-prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc/ssh --with-pam
    make install

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

    can anyone help me with this please?

    Thank You

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