    How do I set up remote ssh login?


    Is it possible to set up an ssh account on my linux box so that I can log into it via the web? or simply over a lan from a Windoze machine? I know how to set up a ssh account, but accessing it is something I don't know how to set up.

    You need to make sure sshd is running (that's the ssh daemon) and that ssh ports are open on your firewall.

    issue the command ssh -l username ipofserver from the client you wish to connect with.

    For example

    ssh -l n3wo 192.168.0.1

    for windows, your best bet is probably the putty ssh client, its free and friendly.
