Lately, I have thought of maybe setting up an SSH server on my computer.
I'm currently using Slackware 10.1, and are planning to use the included OpenSSH(deamon), but I have a few questions:
1. I have googled a bit, and figured out that I only need to modify my
/etc/sshd/sshd_config to something like this(Short version of the conf file):
And then restart SSHD with:"service sshd restart".
Can I log into my computer remotely using SSH now?
Is this correct? In other words, is this all it is to it?
2. How safe is it to have a SSH deamon/server running?
Is it easy to get cracked by a cracker? Somthing to keep in mind when running a SSH server to be safe from crackers?
PS: I din't acctualy quite know where to submit this thread(Sercurety, Network, Software), but I thought that this was the most correct place to put it. So if any of you admins feel like moving it, plz do
Thanks in advance,
