I’ve just installed a fresh Debian 6.0.4 on my Virtualbox 4.1.12. Now I need to setup the SSH server enabled on my Debian 6.0.4 system. SSH is required in order to connect to Debian remotely via secure connection SSH protocol. By default, Debian does not comes with SSH enabled. We need to install this SSH package manually. OK, now with a single command, we can get SSH server installed and enabled on Debian.
How to install SSH on Debian 6.04
Open Terminal and execute this command as root
apt-get install ssh
Wait until the installation finished. Once done, you can check and start SSH server using these commands:
service ssh status #this will check the ssh server status if its running or stopped
service ssh start #start the ssh server
service ssh stop #stop the ssh server
service ssh restart #restart the ssh server
That’s it, pretty easy right? Now we can connect to Debian 6.0.4 using SSH protocol from any other computer. You may use Putty (Windows) or any other remote desktop connection (Linux) such as Remmina.
