Hi,

On my Linux SuSE servers, when installing the client, we had to link 2 libraries :

/lib64/libssl.so.6 -> /usr/lib64/libssl.so.0.9.8
/lib64/libcrypto.so.6 -> /usr/lib64/libcrypto.so.0.9.8

To see the available libraries : ls -l /usr/lib64/libssl.so.* and ls -l /usr/lib64/libcrypto.so.*
To link the libraries : ln -s (for me it was : ln -s /usr/lib64/libcrypto.so.0.9.8 /lib64/libcrypto.so.6)
To unlink a library : unlink

Hope it helps…
