    How to use SSH(Secure Shell) Service in linux?

    Hi all

    I want to learn using SSH (Secure Shell) service in linux and connect to SSH server with PuTTY to test some commands, but I
    have not worked with it yet;

    I have Ubuntu 9.04 on my "Virtual Machine" and my host OS is Win.XP and I have installed "OpenSSH server" and "PuTTY" from the ubuntu repository,

    Is this action rational?
    I mean I want to connect from PuTTY on linux(on VM) to the SSH Server on linux?

    (Meanwhile, I have no work with the host Windows and just wanna test it on the linux!)

    If so, please tell me where should I see the "Host Name/Ip Address" of the SSH Server to enter in the PuTTy's dialog?
    In windows we can use "ipconfig" command to see the IP Addresses, but I don't know what is the command in linx for this purpose?

    Please help me with this to use SSH Service in ubuntu correctly, I'm so hurry?!!!
