Dear English Teachers,

I’ve just written another technical tutorial how to install and configure OpenSSH in Tiny Core Linux. Feel free to proofread, comment, check grammatical errors if there are any, and advise how to improve my technical writing.
You can find the full documentation with screenshot in my blog, however I can’t put the link here as my post is still less than ten at this moment. Any advise would be highly appreciated.

Title: How to install OpenSSH in Tiny Core Linux

1. Make sure Tiny Core Linux is connected to the internet. Simple ping test to is enough. If there is reply from, it means that internet is working fine. However, if there is no reply, then you need to check the connection.

2. Open terminal and type ab openssh. Ab is stand for AppBrowser.

3. Once the Ab (AppBrowser) found the OpenSSH package which is openssh.tcz, enter “1” to select it.

4. The following menu explaining about openssh.tcz will be presented. Enter “q” to quit from the info page.

5. Enter “i” to install the openssh package.

6. Wait for a few minutes as OpenSSH package and the necessary dependencies will be downloaded to your Tiny Core Linux box.

7. Change your directory to “/usr/local/etc/ssh” by typing “cd /usr/local/etc/ssh”

8. You’ll find there are three files in it by typing “ls –al”

9. Copy sshd_config.example to sshd_config by executing command “sudo cp sshd_config.example sshd_config”

10. The next step is to start the OpenSSH service by typing “sudo /usr/local/etc/init.d/openssh start”

11. Once the OpenSSH service started, you’ll find the TCP port 22 is listening. You can verify this by executing command “netstat -an”

12. Test your OpenSSH configuration by from ssh client. I’ll be using PuTTY for this purpose.

13. If your SSH configuration is working, you’ll be presented by login prompt

14. To login, change the tc user’s password by using “passwd” command.

15. Go back to the putty client, and login with the new password of tc user.

16. Congratulation! You’ve just successfully configured a OpenSSH server for your Tiny Core Linux.
