Question on setting up SSH.


Well first I would like to say HI!
I'm new to Linux (been running Mandrake a whole 3 days) so I will be here a lot.

My first question is ssh. How do I set it up? I installed most everything that was on the three discs except for the DNS/NIS, DHCP and GNOME. But when I try to log on to my linux box with a ssh client it tells me I cannot open the connection. I can view the apache default webpage and can log on through FTP.

My intentions for this computer is a gaming server of which I wish to admin remotely. (also for serving personal webpages and a personal use FTP)

you didn't install gnome? travesty....

anyway, you need to install the openssh rpm's from the cd's. after that assuming the server is running on your system, which it should by default, there should be nothign else to do

Ah ok.. cool. istall openssh rpm.. cool.

I didn't install GNOME because I was informed by a few that KDE was the better. What are the differences, pros and cons of each? I hear KDE is pretty resource intensive, but then isn't all of Linux, lol

ahh there's not a huge amount of difference, i just think gnome looks and ahndles nicer. uses abuot teh same amount of resources tho. if you want to read arguments abuot it, there are plenty on this site.

imho Gnome is for people who KNOW they're boring and try to make the best of it, kde is for people who don't realise they are boring
