Talking running ssh on redhat 8.0

Hey guys,
I just installed redhat 8.0 on my machine and want to access it from work using ssh.In my rc5.d i can see an ssh daemon already running so i'm assuming i have ssh already.
Problem is how do i continue from here, configuration and all that stuff.How can i access from work,sorry i've never used ssh before

Thanks all.

you can edit /etc/ssh/sshd_config

most important, set

PermitRootLogin no

you can also have a

ValidUsers sheek user1 user2

and reload the sshd service.

man sshd_config for more configuration tips
