How To Install SSH On Debian GNU/Linux PC

I recently installed Secure Shell or SSH on a Debian GNU/Linux PC so that I can configure and connect to it remotely using an SSH client.

I am a newbie on this thing, thanks to Google, I was able to do it easily. Here are the steps:

1. Login as administrator.
2. Add this line to your /etc/apt/sources.list

deb http://pandora.debian.org/debian-non-us woody non-US/main non-US/non-free non-US/contrib

3. Open the Terminal and run apt-get install ssh
4. Open /etc/ssh/ssh_config and add the following lines:

Host *
ForwardAgent yes
ForwardX11 yes

5. Reload SSH with the following command:
/etc/init.d/ssh reload

That’s it! SSH is now installed and running on your Debian Linux PC.
