Remote Login


Thanks for the help so far. I got to a point where I can use a terminal program to get to my system remotely on my LAN. I get the return message: SSH-1.99-OpenSSH_3.6.1p2
and then things just stay like that.
Do I have to enter something special to get presented with a login prompt?
Thanks,
Scott

No. You should be presented with a password prompt. Looks like you are not quite there but close.

are you entering your ssh command correctly?

Should be: #>ssh user@host.com

for example, if my login is: deviance99 and my host is 192.168.1.34

I would login like this: #>ssh deviance99@192.168.1.34

then I would presented with a prompt for my password.

Thanks for the thoughts. Unfortuately this is the newbie forum and I clearly belong here. I am not entering any ssh command. I have set up ssh to run at start up and am trying to log in from another computer on my LAN with a terminal program. I get the output above and then it stops.

So there's so much I don't know that I don't even know how to ask the right question. At least that's how I feel at the moment. Thanks for being patient. I wonder if the fact that I'm using a terminal program instead of an ssh client on my windows machine. From the reading I've done since I should try a program like Putty.

Yes, that is your problem. You can't use a telnet client to connect to ssh. Get an ssh client and it should work.

I usually use ssh client, since it gives a nice file tranfer client too.

SSh client download page
