Solutions Fast Track

Installing OpenSSH Server

  • Installing OpenSSH on most distributions is simple when using the distribution's package manager.
  • Ubuntu uses apt as a package manager. To install OpenSSH, just type “sudo apt-get install ssh”.

Controlling Your SSH Server

  • Controlling the SSH daemon is done by using the sudo command in conjunction with the path to the init script in /etc/init.d/.
  • The options for the service are Start, Stop, Reload, Force-Reload, Restart, and Try-Restart.

Configuring SSH to Ease Your Paranoia

  • Configuration of the SSH service is controlled by the file sshd_config.
  • SSH Protocol 1 is inherently insecure and its use should be prohibited by the config file.
