OpenSSH : Password Authentication
2022/05/13
 
Configure SSH Server to operate server from remote computers.
[1] OpenSSH is already installed by default even if you installed Fedora with Minimal Install, so it does not need to install new packages. You can login with Password Authentication by default.
[root@dlp ~]#
systemctl status sshd

*  sshd.service - OpenSSH server daemon
     Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/sshd.service; enabled; vendor pres>

[root@dlp ~]#
firewall-cmd --add-service=ssh

[root@dlp ~]#
firewall-cmd --runtime-to-permanent

success

# ssh [username@(hostname or IP address)]

[root@client ~]#
ssh fedora@dlp.srv.world

[fedora@dlp ~]$   # logined
[5] It's possbile to execute commands on remote Host with SSH like follows.
# for example, run [cat /etc/passwd]

[fedora@client ~]$

SSH Client : Windows #1
 
Configure SSH Client for Windows. This example is on Windows 11.
[6]
Download a SSH Client software for Windows.
On this example, it shows Putty (www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/).
Install and start Putty, then Input your server's Hostname or IP address on [Host name] field and Click [Open] button to connect.
[7] After successfully passed authentication, it's possible to login and operate Fedora server from remote computer.
SSH Client : Windows #2
[8] On Windows 11, OpenSSH Client has been implemented as a Windows feature,
so it's possible to use [ssh] command on PowerShell or Command Prompt without Putty or other 3rd party SSH softwares.
It's the same usage because it's the OpenSSH Client, refer to [4], [5] section.
