This simple tutorial is going to show you how to enable SSH on Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail. SSH (Secure Shell) is a secure communication protocol that lets you remotely access networked computers.

To get started, press “Ctrl+Alt+T” to open up a terminal window for running commands.

1. Run this command to install SSH server:

sudo apt-get install openssh-server

That’s it!

2. Use SSH clients to connect to the machine using the default port is 22. You can change the port and other settings by editing its configuration file “/etc/ssh/sshd_config” by the command:

sudo gedit /etc/ssh/sshd_config

3. Restart this ssh server to apply the changes by this command:

sudo /etc/init.d/ssh restart
