    SSH from a nother network.

    I am trying to set up an SSH server on my computer. I already have open-ssh installed and when anyone enters this command SSH [ip.add.re.ss] they are able to see ' user' prompt and they enter username and password to what i set it and they get an access dinied message. any steps that i might be missing?

    Check /var/log/auth.log for the reason why they are getting access denied messages.

    For log files, have a look at:

    It may be helpful to brush up on using a terminal. You can do that at:

    You can use less to view the log files in the terminal. Open a terminal (ctrl-alt-t) and then enter the following:
    Code:
    less /var/log/auth.log
    With 'less' you can scroll back and forth in the file and can even search using regular expression pattern matching.
