Question how to setup/configure sshd

hi there,

I just install Fedora Core 2 - it works great. The gui is a littler slower than redhat 9, though. The graphical desktop on SuSE looks a little nicer, I wish fedora looked like this.

I want to have the ability to connect to this machine w/ssh from my Mac w/OS X. Right now when I am in my mac and try to ssh to the machine it says "connection refused".

Do I have to install something called shhd? How do I configure this to allow all machines inside my router (subnet 192.168.2. ) to be allowed to connect?

You need to install the ssh server package, which should be named something like ssh-server-X.X.X.rpm

Once you did, search for its conf file and edit it accordingly. Should be /etc/sshd.conf

The "d" in the end means the server runs as a daemon.

to check if the rpm is installed:
rpm -q sshd (you can try several diff names here)

To start the server, as root in my suse I would do:
rcsshd start
To stop:
rcsshd stop
to query:
rcsshd status
