SSH, I mean Shhhh, They're Listening

You're going to need it, you're going to use it. SSH is one of the first applications I install and configure, when setting up a new Linux host. In this lab I'm installing OpenSSH, and configuring it to start on boot.

To install SSH, open a terminal and type: sudo apt install ssh

Type Y to continue

To configure the SSH service to start on boot, type: sudo systemctl enable ssh

Note the systems IP address, type: ip addr

Open your SSH terminal of choice on another system, to test your newly setup SSH installation. Enter the IP, User, and Password, to test.

Everything worked, I'm in!

Woo Woo,
