For this tutorial I make the assumption both computers are on the local network and I use Remmina as the application for VNC access.
On the host computer:
ssh -l username ipaddress", where username is the name of the user you wish to log in as and ipaddress is the IP address of your system. You can also substitute the hostname of the system in place of the IP address. The test can be made from a remote system or from your local system. If you see the SSH server answering then everything is OK.
On the client computer:
When I put in the IP address and user ID (step 2-6), I get a "connection refused" message. I've shut off the firewall on the system being accessed. Is there something else I'm supposed to do to make the system accessible? If I'm supposed to add rules to something to allow the connection, what rules to I add?
Use firestarter to add rules to iptables to allow the connection.
Good article. Good job.
