    Re: do i need ssh files to configure the connection or not

    You don't need ssh unless you want to access remote systems over ssh. github would use an ssh connection. Local git repo management doesn't need ssh.

    Normal network connections don't need ssh. For example, network manager and using email programs and web browsers do not require ssh.

    OTOH, having sshd running on every system so you can access each of them over network connections can be very helpful. I setup sshd with fail2ban on all my systems. The openssh-server package includes the sshd daemon.

    Based on your prompt, I doubt this is an Ubuntu question.
