    Starting SSH in Slackware 10

    I have Slackware 10.

    I am planning on running SSH on the slackware machine, and putty on my windows machine to get a shell connection, but I do not know the command that I am supposed to use to run SSH. I have been told that Slackware 10 already has SSH preinstalled...

    As root:

    To check if SSH is installed:
    ls /var/log/packages/*ssh*
    To start the SSH server daemon on boot:
    chmod +x /etc/rc.d/rc.sshd
    To start the SSH server daemon without rebooting:
    /etc/rc.d/rc.sshd start
    To check if SSHd is running:
    pgrep ssh

    Perfect, thanks.

    Is there any configuring to SSH? Is there anything that I need to tweak before I run putty on my windows machine? Or do I just type in the IP on putty and I will have a Konsole?

    you can edit /etc/ssh/sshd_config and set 'allowRootLogins' (or something like that) to yes, and you'll be able to login as root directly over SSH without having to login as a normal user first then su to root.

    putty will just work after that when you put the hostname or IP in, and it brings up its own window, you will not get a KDE 'konsole' but a normal putty terminal.
