I have downloaded the OpenSSH and OpenSSL (prerequisite for OpenSSH).
The installation went fine.

I have several questions about the public/private keys. When I used the ssh-keygen,
the keys were generated. I am assuming you use one of these keys with the ssh client.
The clients I will use are on Win95/NT and OS/2.

Do I copy these keys and put them in the ssh clients directory?

When I tried to start sshd, I got the following message.

error: Could not load host key: /usr/local/etc/ssh_host_key: No such file or directory

I did not see any info about ssh_host_key in the ssh or sshd man pages. What
is this key and how do I fix it?
