Setting up ssh server on Ubuntu 5.1

This article documents the process of installing the ssh daemon.

The first step is to install the ssh package. Go into the "System" menu, click "Administration", and then select "Synaptic Package Manager". Do a search for "ssh". The package manager will find a bunch of packages. Select the "ssh" package and put a check mark in the checkbox. A menu will pop-up. Select "Mark for Installation". Another dialog box will pop up. The dialog box is titled, "Mark additional required changes?" Click on the "Mark" button.

Now, the dialog box has returned you to the "Synaptic Package Manager" software. Click on the "Apply" button. The package manager will show you the summary of things to be installed and ask you, Apply the following changes?" Click the "Apply" button to proceed.

Finally, the package manager will start downloading the packages and install them. It takes a while for this process to finish, so you might consider doing something else while you wait.

When it's done, Ubuntu shows you a "Changes applied" dialog. You can look at the installation details through this dialog. Click the "Close" button to finish the install. Now you can close the "Synaptic Package Manager".

Now you can ssh into your Ubuntu computer. If you issue an "ps -ef" command, you will see that sshd is running:

root 8874 1 0 22:21 ? 00:00:00 /usr/sbin/sshd

If you prefer to use the command-line interface, use the following command to install ssh:

sudo apt-get install ssh
