Post Trouble starrting ssh


I am a newbie to Linux, and I am having trouble starting the sshd daemon. When I do "rpm -qa | grep openssh*" I get,

openssl-0.9.6.b-8
openssh-askpass-gnome-2.9p2-7
openssh-askpass-2.9p2-7
openssh-2.9p2-7

implying that ssh is installed on my machine.

Yet, when I go to start the service, "service sshd start", I receive the error message:

unrecognized service.

Can someone explain what I need to do to start sshd on this box?

Thanks

crawl away

no, you've not got the openssh-server package installed. openssh is just the clients

Thanks much for such a prompt reply.

I tried your suggestion by uninstalling and re-installing from the CD-ROM per Redhat's suggestion, (http://kb.redhat.com/view.php?eid=223)

namely:

rpm -Uvh openssh*.rpm


and again services sshd start generates the same error message of

Service Not Started.

Is there something else I need to do to install the server?

it really helps if you read people's replies (e.g. mine) you need to INSTALL the openssh-server rpm. that llink is just for the client, nhot the server.
