    ssh Ubuntu-->OS X: Port 22 Connection Refused

    I'm relatively new to using ssh.

    I'm able to log in to my ubuntu box from my girlfriend's mac with no problem. Unfortunately, when I try to reverse it (using her mac as the remote) I get the message: Port 22: Connection Refused.

    I think there's probably something very simple that I'm missing here, and I'm currently searching around the internet, but a point in the right direction would be much appreciated.

    You need a ssh server installed and running on the Mac host.

    Moving to Apple Users sub-forum where you might get quicker and more specialized help.
    Thank you for your contributions. "So long and thanks for the fish!"

    Her mac doesn't have ssh enabled.

    In OSX its pretty easy: System Preferences -> Sharing -> Remote Login

    Just search for enable ssh in OSX
