thanks. There appears to be no way of telling SW Mgr to "Add this subsystem" to my installation ... so do I need to uninstall it compeletely, and re-install it? Where is the configuration parameter set to instruct SWMgr to "do what i want"?
Under "PANES" there is a "commandline" switch which gives similar power like the inst tool.
inst -f /path/to/all/of/my stuff
You may consider to upgrade to 6.5.22 and start with nekoware rather than SGIs freeware. Most of the packages a much newer.
The openssh.sw.server subsystem is not installed by default.
