I am very new to linux and literally just started using it last weekend. I am playing around with getting a server up and running and I am trying to get SSH to run on my machine. I installed openSSH-server through aptitude and based on various tutorials online that seemed to be all I needed to do. However, I still cannot login through PuTTY on a remote machine. When I ran
chkconfig it said that SSH was turned off and I have no idea how to turn it on. Not only that, but I'm not sure what IP to use from
lo? Which one? Can somebody please instruct me on how to turn on SSH, and what IP address I'm supposed to use to connect to it?
Not sure if this is relevant, but I'm running it through VirtualBox because I'm waiting on a server computer.
