    ssh to ubuntu machine on home network

    hello

    I recently setup a media server with Karmic on it.
    I would like to log onto the machine while at home from my laptop, with ssh, however networking is my least understood topic. Ultimately I'd like to
    ssh to it from anywhere, although I have a dynamic IP.

    My wireless router is setup to use 10.0.0.100 for the various machines which connect to
    it. The media server is 10.0.0.103

    just trying
    Code:
     ssh user@10.0.0.103
    returns the connection refused error

    not sure what the next thing to try is...googling is hard for me since I don't know the terminology involved.

    thanks,

    ssh (server-user-name)@(ip-address)
    example

    ssh cristian@192.168.x.x
    and then enter that particular users password, when prompted.

    wannabegeek,

    Have you made sure that openssh-server is installed on the media server?

    If not, install it, and give it another go.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install ssh

    Hopefully that is all that is holding you up!

    wannabegeek,

    Just to double-check, are you sure that openssh-server is present?

    It will not be there by default, although openssh-client should be. Without openssh-server, you would be able to ssh from but not to your media server. This may all be old news to you.

    'ssh' is just a small meta-package that pulls in both the SSH client and server packages, and possibly one or two others.

    If you have made sure that openssh-server is there, you might just try running:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install ssh --reinstall
    Perhaps something strange happened, and your keys never got generated the first time around.

    To check and see whether or not your SSH daemon is running, enter:
    Code:
    sudo /etc/init.d/ssh status
    If it isn't running, you can start it with:
    Code:
    sudo /etc/init.d/ssh start
