I've just tested theses packages with ARAnyM ans EasyMiNT.
Updating the system using RPMs works is too easy ;-)
rpm -U openssl-0.9.8j-1.m68kmint.rpm openssh-5.2p1-1.m68kmint.rpm openssh-clients-5.2p1-1.m68kmint.rpm openssh-server-5.2p1-1.m68kmint.rpm

The SSH server just works.

I have generated my server keys:
ssh-keygen -t rsa -f /etc/ssh/ssh_host_rsa_key
ssh-keygen -t dsa -f /etc/ssh/ssh_host_dsa_key

They I defined a password for the user root:

Then I ran the server from a TosWin console:
/usr/sbin/sshd -D

Then I ran PuTTY on Windows and I entered the IP address of the ARAnyM virtual host. I entered the login "root" and the password previously defined. And "voilà!" ! I'm in the MiNT bash shell from my Windows terminal window :-) I can even get a colorized directory listing by typing "ls -l --color=auto" :-) I guess I'll never use again the TosWin console.

The ssh client works, too, but it is unusable. When connected to another host, I get the well known "stairs effect". CR is not inserted before LF as expected. The same occurs when using the ssh client from a PuTTY terminal window. So this problem is not related to the TosWin console.

I noticed this problem often occurs with UNIX software compiled for MiNT. Some automatic translation may be missing somewhere.

So except that bug, it works fine.
Keith, thank you for your work :-)
