Earlier when attempting to login to a DD-WRT router at my house I was unable to so I figured when I upgraded the software last night that is must have disabled SSH Management for some reason. I went into the web interface to turn SSH Management on but it was greyed out. Luckily the fix is easy but wanted to note it in an article in case others couldn’t find the location to turn SSH on in DDWRT.
Earlier I was working on a clients Mac OSX laptop and needed to login remotely without the hassle of setting a password and then removing it when I was done. The article below will describe not only how to enable SSH from a terminal window on the Macintosh laptop itself but also how to configure SSH so it will allow remote login via SSH without a password.
While messing around with a client’s laptop this afternoon I needed to enable SSH and decided to not only do it via the CLI but locate the method to do it via the Mac OSX Desktop as well. Enabling SSH via the OSX GUI can be done via the Sharing sub section of System Preferences by checking one box. Below is information on how to launch OSX System Preferences, navigate to enabling services in Sharing, and then enabling SSH.
This is one of those things I just wanted to do because I thought it would be cool. I woke up this morning at 4:00 AM for no apparent reason, and could not get back to sleep. I started fiddling around with some work servers when the idea hit me that me and Alex needed a cool ssh banner for the tools server. This is probably the lamest article ever but I may want to do this again someday so I decided to document it.
