Starting ssh on fedora
hiya all

I am trying to connect to my Red Hat fedora box using the SSH client puTTy from windows. When i installed RedHat enterprise i banged the ip into putty and boom up it came. I guess i need to start a service under fedora to achive the same thing.

Can anyone point me in the right direction??

# /etc/init.d/sshd start

and add sshd to the default runlevel so it starts up on boot:

# chkconfig sshd on

To start a secure shell on fedora go to the applications menu "System Settings" then "Server Settings" then "Services" here you will see and be able to start/stop supported services. Start up sshd. Or in a terminal as root type "service sshd start".

Thanks guys. Do both those commands do the same thing? 'service sshd start' and '/etc/init.d/sshd start'

I have run both those commands and i still can't connect from my windows box. I am confident that ssh is running. So i guess that leaves the Firewall? I am sorry i am pretty new to linux. The firewall is IP tables right? i suppose i need to open up port 22?

The port was open on the firewall. A simple reboot has solved whatever the problem was.
Thanks guys.
On a totally different note is there and equivlent to windows ctrl+alt+del? The reason i rebooted is becuase a application crashed and i could get out of it.

the combination of the "ps ax" command (to find the process id number of the crashded process) then the "kill process id#" (replace process id with actual pid number) will shut down a crashed process. you may need to "kill -9 process id#" if "kill" by itself does not work.
