Enable ssh

Hello All

I just finished my installation of Slackware 10.2 and finished also my
installation of Samba.

I tried to login from my Windows to my Linux machine with PUTTY, with SSH but is not working.

Is it possible for someone to tell me where I have to go and enable it so my machine can accept ssh requests?

I don't want to connect with telnet. Only SSH.

Thank you very much!

Um, for the benefit of posterity, can you explain what the problem was and how you fixed it?

I assume he launched "pkgtool" as root, then followed the menus to setup -> services and enabled the ssh server from there.
