I turned off SSH, but I cant get it back! How do you start SSH on boot?

Ive been running slackware 9.1 for a couple of months now, and with the default installation I believe SSH was running, with the ssh port opened. I wanted to secure my box a bit so followed some instructions for closing off unneeded services. I didnt need SSH, so I disabled it.

Now I want to use SSH but I have no idea how I turned it off! Most services I commented out in the /etc/inet.conf file - but there is nothing in there about SSH.

What instruction would I need to start SSH, and where should I put it to load on boot? All instructions I have found about it dont seem to apply to Slackware.

The normal way of disabling and enabling services in Slackware is by adding or removing the execute rights of a script located in /etc/rc.d/ .
In this case you could issue a command like 'chmod +x /etc/rc.d/rc.sshd' and start it (will be started at boot time automaticly) with '/etc/rc.d/rc.sshd start' .

But I don't know how you disabled it so I'm not sure this works for you.

Yeah! I think thats it! The file doesnt have execute permissions (I cant test if changing it works, 'cause Im at work and I dont have an SSH connection
