OPENSSH Configuration

I am running Debian Lenny on a home server. I have openssh installed. When I try to connect to it with my laptop running Vista, I have to run to the server and click ALLOW on a popup window that says another user is trying to control my desktop and has two buttons - ALLOW REFUSE. What do I need to do on the server side so I can connect with my laptop and not have to run to the server to click ALLOW??

Also, is there a GUI interface for configuring OPENSSH server? I am running GNOME.

ADDITIONAL INFO: I am using RealVNC on my laptop running VISTA to connect to my Debian Server.

How are you connecting from Vista? You need to use SSH software like PuTTY

that doesn't sound like ssh, but more like remote desktop or similar. with what tool or application are you trying to connect from Vista?
