Openssh - my next project
Time to learn more about network configs and tools with Linux. I've never touched ssh before, but have been reading up on it.

I have Ubuntu 10.04 on my laptop and will be installing OpenSUSE 11.3 on my desktop, getting my home network setup between the two then proceed from there. I also need to point out this is my first foray into this, so forgive any gaffs or common sense methods that may not appear so straight forward to me. :)

I've been reading various sites tutorials but was wondering if anyone had a known, solid and up to date tutorial they would use, and any tips/tricks/suggestions anyone might have would be welcome.

Thanks in advance for any input guys. :)

Re: Openssh - my next project
ssh is easy really. Assuming your hostnames are 'laptop' and 'desktop' for example:

from your laptop...

#ssh grey_1@desktop .. this will open a shell on the desktop, from the laptop.

to copy a file from the desktop to the laptop:

#scp myfile.zip grey_1@laptop

If your usernames are the same on both machines you wont need the username.

Thats the basics, if you want to make it passwordless you will have to make some keys and put them in the .ssh folder on both machines, there are plenty of tutorials available.

Thanks pross - I thought while reading that it looked too easy, but it's nice to have confirmation that it is just that simple.
