Password Authentication

Configure SSH Server to login from remote computer.

[1] OpenSSH is already installed by default even if you install Future OS with [Workstation Installation], so you don't need to install new packages. By default, you can login with password authentication for [Server Setup], but for security, you can change some settings as follows. For [Workstation Setup], the OpenSSH service is disabled by default!

[[email protected] ~]# vi /etc/ssh/sshd_config
# line 40: change ( prohibit root login remotely )
PermitRootLogin prohibit-password
[[email protected] ~]# systemctl restart sshd

[2] If Firewalld is running, allow SSH service. SSH uses 22/TCP.

[[email protected] ~]# firewall-cmd --permanent --add-service=ssh
[[email protected] ~]# firewall-cmd --reload

Configure SSH Client for Future OS

[1] Install SSH Client.

[[email protected] ~]# dnf install openssh-clients -y

[2] Connect to SSH server with a common user.

# ssh [[email protected](hostname or IP address)]
[[email protected] ~]# ssh [email protected]
