SSH server in 4MLinux

4MLinux has the following set of its main servers: FTP, HTTP, SSH, and Telnet. This post aims to describe shortly how to use the SSH server. 4MLinux includes OpenSSH as its SSH server daemon.

1) Open your terminal and execute the 'sshd' command:

2) Let's start the server now ('sshd start'). Host keys will be generated during the first run:

3) It's time to check if the server is really running ('sshd test'):

4) By default, none of 4MLinux servers is started automatically during the boot, but you can change this by setting 'SSH' to 'yes' in the /etc/server/autostart.conf file:

5) If you are a fun of TUI (like I am :-), then you can use the 'ssh' command as your SSH client (just try it yourself in your terminal). If you prefer GUIPuTTY will be the best choice for you:

6) And once again: if you are a fun of TUI, then you can use the 'sftp' command as your SFTP client (you can see it in action in point 3 above). If you prefer GUI,  WinSCP will be the best choice for you:

4MLinux uses inetd to manage its main servers.
