I there something that I have to set up on my system, or is it preset?

the way i ssh my computer on LAN is
#ssh ( its the ip of my other machine )
then it will ask for password ( prbably for root )
enter the password......and you are in.

you can ssh through an user account too instead of "root"
for that make an account on that machine .

and what i know don't have to do anything to have "ssh" on your machine.....its automatically there ( at least on my both linux machines )
