Hi there,

Of course need to have ssh install on you system!!!

You can turn on the service "sshd" in the "system-config-services". You should have access to all the service running on your system. You need to enable the sshd service.

yast->system -> system services-->sshd--> enable

Done, thanks.

But when I use putty to ssh, I'm getting Access Denied.

Do you have a directory named ".ssh" in each home directory with some files in it? If not, run this as a regular user:


You should copy the ~/.ssh/*.pub files on each PC to the other PC into file ~/.ssh/authorized_keys. The .pub files are not secret, so you can copy them by ftp or a public directory or whatever. Each .pub file is one very long line, and the authorized_keys file has nothing else but these very long lines.

If you change something after you've logged in once, the entry in ~/.ssh/known_hosts on the othe PC may prevent you from logging again. So if in doubt, delete the known_hosts files and allow them to be regenerated.

To login by password, you must not have "PasswordAuthentication no" in either /etc/ssh/sshd_config or /etc/ssh/ssh_config.

by default i think won't be so much job to do, can you tell us how you login?
