Starting SSH Server

I am trying to get SSH daemon to work on my linux box, I am I tried going into the KDE Control panel to see what services start at bootup and I don't have ssh anywhere in there, how do you first see if you have ssh installed and second start it by hand? Thanks for any help.

P.S. I am running Redhat 7.2

To see if you have the ssh server installed type:
find / -name ssh*

If installed it should come back with something like
/etc/rc.d/init.d/sshd #is the ssh server that people will connect to when they ssh into your computer
/usr/bin/ssh #is the client side software

check in /etc/rc.d/rc3.d/ and see if there is a file called something like S55sshd, if it is called K55sshd then rename it to S55sshd, and type: /etc/rc.d/rc3.d/S55sshd start to manually start it. If you renamed it to start with a S then the next time you reboot it will start automaticaly.

If you cant find sshd then you will have to install the ssh-server software.

This is what I see when I look for ssh* do I have what I need for the ssh server?

[root@webserver bin]# find / -name ssh*
[root@webserver bin]#

there is no ssh server deamon startup file, so I think you dont have a server installed, you have a client though.

the best way to find if you have the server installed or not is to query the rpm ( if you havent installed ssh from the scratch )

run this: rpm -qa |grep ssh

if you have the server installed it should show a package with server word present in it. you can install the server form your install CD or you can find the rpm form

once you install it you can start the server by this command

/etc/rc.d/init.d/sshd start

good luck
