OpenSSH overview

OpenSSH is a free version of the SSH connectivity tools that technical users of the Internet rely on. Users of telnet, rlogin, and ftp may not realize that their password is transmitted across the Internet unencrypted, but it is. OpenSSH encrypts all traffic (including passwords) to effectively eliminate eavesdropping, connection hijacking, and other attacks. Additionally, OpenSSH provides secure tunneling capabilities and several authentication methods, and supports all SSH protocol versions.

Note: While the software is classified as free, it is actually donationware. Please consider making a donation to help support development.

Does this coëxist with or overwrite Apple's implementation? If it overwrites, how can I know whether it will mess up other parts of my Apple-provided infrastructure?

I can't install OpenSSH 4.5 because it looks like the Makefile has a syntax error on line 3. It doesn't seem to like ".include" but it's happy with simply "include" without the dot. If I make that change then it gets a similar syntax error down in /usr/share/mk/bsd.own.mk (due to ".if" vs. "if"). I don't want to touch that file. The original error is: Makefile:3: *** missing separator. Stop. MacOS 10.2.8 (old, I know, which is why I want to upgrade ssh), /usr/bin/make is GNU Make version 3.79 Has anybody run into this?

Download is unusable when clicked. "File does not appear to be compressed or encoded. Obtain further information about the contents of this file from the sender or provider of the file." Thanks a lot. Me, bitter? Disappointed? An utter waste of download time!
