Azimout's Linux weblog

I only recently discovered the world of ssh.

  • Ubuntu does not automatically install the ssh server, you need to sudo aptitude install openssh-server.
  • Afterwards from a remote terminal type ssh _username_@_remote_machine_.
  • To remotely copy files (like ftp), the command is scp _username_@_remote_machine_:_path_ .
  • you can use scp -C for compression
  • you can use ssh -X for remote desktop functionality

For more information, look here.
