This chapter contains information on using Secure Shell clients other than Tectia client tools for z/OS to connect to Tectia Server for IBM z/OS:


To access a z/OS host that runs Tectia Server using OpenSSH SCP you must either have OpenSSH server running on the same z/OS host with Tectia Server, or OpenSSH SCP must exist in /bin/scp on the z/OS host.


The default OpenSSH configuration on z/OS does not produce SMF records. SMF recording must be configured separately for OpenSSH if the OpenSSH SCP events are intended to be captured.
