I have my linux box pretty much set up but want to get SSH installed and started. I currently run a firewall where port 21 and port 80 are the only open ports. However, i want to make it a bit more secure by removing the ability to do a regular telnet.

Any help would be great, thanks.

First go to http://www.openssh.com and download OpenSSH. You can choose between the RPM and the tarball. After installation you will need to open port 22 on your firewall. If you have any more specific questions as you are going let us know.

You may need to build and install openssl for openssh to build.
