    You can probably install it via yast.

    You need to have an ssh server running on the computer you want to connect to. You install the ssh client on the computer you'll use to connect. In ubuntu the ssh client is installed by default.
    Knock knock.
    Race condition.
    Who's there?

    OpenSSH is installed by default in openSUSE, too.

    If you don't want to do the configuration via the command line and would prefer to use the YaST configuration module for ssh, you'll need to install yast2-sshd.

    It's been a while since I fiddled around with ssh on openSUSE, so I don't know if I can be of much help beyond that.


    Edit: I fired up an openSUSE machine and did not find yast2-sshd. Looks like that's not the tool any longer. Give me a bit to poke around.

    Edit: Hmmm... Can't find it, even though it is still referred to in the documentation.

    Re: run linux - which tools are needed for ssh

    hello dear bashierqui, bill and coffeekat, and qIII

    first of all - many many thanks for the quick reply

    well what i want to do is the following:

    my friend adminstrates a server that i am having several websites on.

    he installed webmin and now i need access on this webmin that is available here

    unfortunatley the dns does not resolve the ip adressbook

    so my friend argued that we have to port forward to the site... - in other words to tunnel my computer to the server.

    i am on opensuse 13. 1 and have enabled ssh
    furthermore i have installed putty.

    well i can run things from command line.

    eg, run ssh for port forwarding to a server:

    this command is workin;

    ssh -p123 -L 2233:

    but i get asked for the public key:

    (ECDSA) to the list of known hosts. Permission denied (publickey).

    well how to add the (public) key -

    a either on command line or
    b. run the above mentioned code on putty?

    love to hear from you
