Thanks Walter,

I found that re-configuring with "LIBS=-lcrypt ./configure" was painless.

Since we're on the subject, has anyone had any luck with sftp on redhat 7
boxes? I keep getting this error message when I try (I have modified
sshd_config to allow sftp connections):

Feb 16 15:46:13 xxxxxx sshd[5605]: error: channel 0: internal error: we
do not read, but chan_read_failed for istate 8

In fact, this seems to occur on a regular basis with sshd in general on
this system...

In other news, I have been totally impressed today by the ability of the
ssh2 protocol to have secure file browsing as well as secure file
copying. This is exactly what I've been looking for...an excellent
alternative to both ftp and scp.

Dave D. (or anyone at CAC), as far as updating the clusters on
dante/homer/etc. can't you just run sshd in fall back mode so we can take
advantage of ssh2 now and still support those who have not installed (or
can't get) an ssh2 client for their systems?
