Incorrect SSH setting
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:09 EST
Description of problem:
If you select SSH as a service during the install (where you can select FTP,
HTTP etc.), if you select SSH you can't login to your own computer (using ssh
usr@localhost). This is because the sshd deamon is not started.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Make a fresh install of F7.
2. Select SSH.
3. Try to login to own computer.
Should be able to login.
If you start sshd yourself everything works.
Allowing access to the port isn't the same as enabling the service. Bot have to
be done for something to be accessible
Shouldn't the installer explicitly state so if that is the case. For all
previous Fedora's sshd was enabled by default so this wasn't a problem, but now
obviously it is.
Also, what would be the point of enabling SSH without being able to use it?
