Question How to set up SSH?


I setup ProFTP. I want to enable SSH access through FTP and Telnet. How can I do it?

Do I need to download any SSH software?

SSH is one service, FTP is another. You can't enable SSH through FTP or telnet, because they're different things. Actually, SSH is a replacement for telnet.
To enable SSH you need an ssh server and client software. You can get it from OpenSSH requires Openssl ( to run.

Thanks for your advice. May I ask you whether there is any online tutorial or steps for the complete setup both of the openssl and openssh?

Should I just download OpenSSL 0.9.6e? or I need to download OpenSSL 0.9.6e [engine] ?

Do I need to download all these programs? ssh, scp, sftp, sshd, ssh-add, ssh-agent, ssh-keygen and sftp-server.

You need to download, maybe compile if there aren't any binaries for your system and install OpenSSL.

ssh, scp, sftp, sshd, ssh-add, ssh-agent, ssh-keygen and sftp-server are all part of the OpenSSH (or SSH, if you prefer) suite, so download, compile if it's the source distribution, and install OpenSSH.

Step-by-step instructions (if you download the source distribution):

1. tar xzf open[ssh|ssl]*.tar.gz
2. cd open[ssh|ssl]*
3. ./configure
4. make
5. make install

Make sure you install OpenSSL first.
