How to turn on ssh server remotely


Is there a way to remotely turn the ssh server on or transfer files without the ssh server running? I tried scp and ftp without success.

I am away from my work computer for several days and forgot to start the ssh server (ever since I updated to OpenSUSE 12.2, the ssh server does not start automatically even when I select it to in Yast).

Thanks

Hello and welcome to LQ.

This is kind of a chicken-and-egg problem. You must have some kind of server running to connect to that machine, but you can't start a server without connecting. For SSH and scp you need a running SSH server, for FTP you need a running FTP server. If there is no other server (Samba, for example) running you can connect to then you are out of luck.
