      I am not a Linux guy, so I am very careful to document how I get
      things to work. Now that I have installed OpenSSH several times, I
      thought I'd share the steps I used to get it to work.

      You will need to have root access to telnet to get this to work.

      I started with a copy of the OpenSSH binaries (part of the archive on
      http://kurobox.com/downloads/binary.zip) on to the shared area of the
      Linkstation's hard drive.

      login as root

      copy openSSH binaries file to /
      # cp /mnt/share/openssh-3.0.2p1.tar.gz .
      # cd /
      # tar xfvz openssh-3.0.2p1.tar.gz
      # rm openssh-3.0.2p1.tar.gz

      Now we need to generate keys
      # ssh-keygen -f /etc/ssh/ssh_host_key -N ""
      # ssh-keygen -t rsa1 -f /etc/ssh/ssh_host_rsa_key -N ""
      # ssh-keygen -t dsa -f /etc/ssh/ssh_host_dsa_key -N ""


      Now start deamon sshd and see if it is working:
      # sshd -d -D

      You should now be able to login with Putty or other SSH clinet.

      To start the deamon normally:
      # sshd



      Now, does anyone know how to run sshd every time the Linkstation
      boots? (I told you I wasn't a Linux guy!!!)
      Good luck!

      Chris, Glad to hear your LinkStation is up and working again and that you have OpenSSH working. Now that you documented the process you should cut and paste

        Chris,

        Glad to hear your LinkStation is up and working again and that you have
        OpenSSH working. Now that you documented the process you should cut and
        paste your write-up into a text or rtf file and post it with the other
        how-to's.

          The other easier way you can do is:

          # pwd
          /
          # tar fxzv openssh-3.0.2p1.tar.gz
          # vi /etc/init.d/ssh

          There's a line:
          # Uncomment the following line to allow the script to
          autogenerate
          # the required keys if they are not on the system.
          #AUTOKEYGEN=yes

          Just uncomment it as:
          AUTOKEYGEN=yes

          Then run /etc/init.d/ssh start
          it'll generate the server key for you and start the
          SSH daemon.

          you can then link it to rc3.d
          ln -s /etc/init.d/ssh /etc/rc.d/rc3.d/S20ssh

          So it'll start whenever your box boot up.
