    remotely logging in to rh9 box


    I am curious. I would like to use a program called "putty" to remotely log in to my Red hat 9 linux box remotely using ssh. What do i have to do enable to connect to my linux box remotely? Reason that im wondering is because i want to be able to work on some scripting remotely while im at work. THanks for the help!

    I use Fedora, but I think there should be a method like this, or simmilar to this on RH9.

    Go to Start Here >> System Settings >> Server Settings >> Services

    From there you can enable SSH, and log onto it with putty as you would any other SSH server.

    Make sure you configure the /etc/ssh/sshd.conf first. AllowRootLogin should always be no for security. And there are various other things that you may want to change to some personal settings.

    Hmmm...

    If it is security you want kerberos telnet is probably what you want...

    But othervise you can run "service sshd start" and "chkconfig sshd on" to start the service and make sure that it is on when you reboot...

    I'll be reading the docs on it later this week...but for the mean time, indulge me: how is kerberos more secure that SSH?
