View Full Version : [ubuntu] Sshd service

January 18th, 2009, 06:21 PM

Just been wondering whether I can check the status of the sshd service remotely i.e. if it replies to users' requests; this service runs on the Ubuntu server [ guess it would be the 22 tcp port ].

If possible, can this be done via the freshly installed WinXP OS on my laptop [ the LAN network is the same for both the server and laptop ], probably some parameters, if any, should be used along with the netstat command...or any other suggestions?

And, yes, there would be the Linux firewall, which do not allow an outbound connection from the Winxp laptop, and needs to be by-passed.

Basically, what I'd probably need to know is if the sshd's port is open or not...

Sorry for this cross platform request submitted, just trying figuring out ways of maintaining the Ubuntu server remotely.

May be someone is aware of any relevant OpenSSH forums?
