Quote:
sshd (SSH Daemon) is the daemon program for ssh(1). Together these pro-
grams replace rlogin and rsh, and provide secure encrypted communications
between two untrusted hosts over an insecure network. The programs are
intended to be as easy to install and use as possible.

sshd is the daemon that listens for connections from clients. It is nor-
mally started at boot from /etc/rc. It forks a new daemon for each
incoming connection. The forked daemons handle key exchange, encryption,
authentication, command execution, and data exchange. This implementa-
tion of sshd supports both SSH protocol version 1 and 2 simultaneously.
I don't know about you, but I would want this running at boot.

sshd is very cool service

You even can use it to copy files
use this:
scp root@remoteIP:/directory/file /localdirectory

Then you can easily to copy a file from a remote server to local directory.
