I have installed openssh-server on my Debian build of Linux, and now I want to access the SSH server on my windows pc, with FileZilla, but I need to find the username and password of the server, how do I do that?


The SSH username and password is usually the same username and password you log in with on Debian. If you don't know your username, you can use the command whoami. The server address is just the ip of the server, and if all the devices are on the same network, you can use ifconfig to figure that out.
