ssh server

Post by excollier » 13. Feb 2016, 15:57

Is an ssh server available in the repos? I cannot seem to find one, only Openssh client. I could really use one so that I can access this computer headlessly from time to to time

openssh is what you want to install, its both server and client.

I have Openssh installed, but it says client only. I always have openssh on the other computers/distros and both client and server are listed.
I am successfully using ssh from Salix to other machines, but unable to ssh in to it.

This is how it locks on my computers:
openssh-7.1p2-x86_64-1_slack14.1 [inst=ja]: openssh (Secure Shell daemon and clients)

(daemon means server)

You need to start it. try to run sudo servicesetup and enable sshd.

Thanks ibka, that did the trick. Wasn't aware it had to be manually started. I'm logged in from another computer now, great stuff! :D

When you run servicesetup it is enabled so now it should start automatically.
