In order to make a remote connection with SSH to your computer where the Linux operating system is installed, you need to have the
SSH Server computer installed or you need to install it. In general,
SSH Server is already installed, but it is not available on some distributors or the service does not start on its own. This is how we set up the ssh server and start the system how it works automatically, we will see now.
1. SSH Server Setup
First, open the Linux terminal and enter the following commands in order.
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install openssh-server
If we get a warning like the following.
openssh-server is already the newest version.
We already have
SSH Server installed it. If it is not installed, you may need to press ‘y’ to install.
After the installation process, we check the service list.
2. Service Control and Startup
In order to check all services, we check with the following command.
sudo service --status-all
Here, [-] means closed and [+] means active.
If we just want to see the status of the
sudo service ssh status
If you type, you can see the service status in detail.
If the service has not started yet
sudo service ssh start
you can start the service with the above command.
3. To Start Service Automatically
Now you can also last and automatically start the optional
SSH Server service.
sudo update-rc.d ssh enable
run the above command. After rebooting, you can check the service status as shown in step 2.
