Question difference between /proc and /sys?


Could someone please help with understanding the difference between /proc and /sys? Also, When enabling public-key authentication using SSH, what file on the remote machine must be modified and how?

Hi,

Sounds like homework to me, which we don't do at LQ.

Here are some pointers (don't you just love a search engine....):

/sys : The /sys/ Directory

/proc : The proc File System

Up to you to find the answer to the ssh question.

Hope this helps.
