    I have done some research online regarding SSH but still am a little confused. So I have the ssh package installed on my server (fedora core 3). Do I need to specify users that can log on? Does the machine automatically enable all users of the machine to log in via ssh when it exists?

    Do I need to enable ssh to run or is the machine automatically listening for ssh requests once the ssh package is installed?

    I also tried using the ssh man pages but they really only told me about encryption and RSA which isnt helpful for the questions i have.

    1. U donot need to specify users to logon.
    2. yes, it enables automatically all users to login.
    3. no, u need to specify whether it should run automatically or not. try "chkconfig" or go to system settings, services & then select the runlevels . but by default , ssh is ON which is a big security issue.
