• SSH Server Setup


    Hey guys,
    I have recently put new instalation of Antergos with Mate on one of my computers. I want to enable ssh server capabilities on there because this box is not staying at my house and I really want to be able to control it remotely. How do I do that? I tried installing openssh from repos, editing sshd_conf but nothing worked. I can’t connect from any other computer. If I type ssh localhost on the machine itself, it works.

    Whare is the problem? Thanks in advance.

  • When you try to connect to it what error message do you get?

    Cheers! I don't know what I'm talking about!

  • I get connection timed out error. I tried connection from different machines and different ssh clients.

  • Are you sure you have the correct IP address?

    Cheers! I don't know what I'm talking about!

  • I checked with ifconfig so I am pretty sure.

  • Are you using a firewall?

    Cheers! I don't know what I'm talking about!

  • On the machine itself - I don’t know. I kept everything stock after fresh install.

  • Well the firewall is a checkbox in Cnchi. It installs the ufw package. If you have that installed then it could be blocking access to port 22.

    But if it’s not installed then I have no idea. I’ve had the same problem and not having the correct internal IP and having the firewall block that ports traffic were my mistakes.

    Sorry, I cant help further. Maybe someone else has a suggestion?

    Cheers! I don't know what I'm talking about!
