urpmi openssh

Once it's done you should be able to login with your user from another machine by opening a terminal and:
ssh -l username 1.2.3.4
Where .1.2.3.4 is the IP of your computer to log into.

If your other machine is a windoze machine you can use things like Putty (google.com for putty) or you can even look into www.cygwin.com (?) for a nice Linux interface while connected to a windoze box.



Cool

Sweet. Thanks dude.

Do you ever sleep?

P.S. Do I have to run that as root? And do I have to start that every single time I start my system or is there a way so that I can have it start automatically? THANKS!

urpmi is the tool used to install that package Then after that it should start automatically each time. Yeah, you do have to be root since you are installing a package (or 3).

Sometimes I think I sleep, but then I end up realizing it wasn't a dream... (ok, so I'm tired ).

Cool
