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
sudo apt install ssh -y
To configure the SSH service to start on boot, type: sudo systemctl enable ssh
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!
