I followed the wiki http://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/SSH and actually there does not seem much to do here.

Code:
rc-update add sshd default

and
Code:
/etc/init.d/sshd start


are completed.

Under the configuration section, it looked like all of that was optional, so I did nothing. When trying to log in via Putty (from a Windows machine on the same network) I get a timeout error. I was expecting to get a prompt in the login process to enter my username and password.

I'm sure I am missing something pretty basic here.

Faraclas,

Has networking started on gentoo?
sshd won't start until nte network is up.

Code:
rc-update add sshd default
is needed for sshd to start at boot.

Code:
/etc/init.d/sshd start
starts it once winhout a reboot.

From putty you need to use root@<IP_address> and make sure putty is using port 22.

Thank you.

I was not using [user]@IP_Adresss before. It is working now. Thanks again for the prompt reply!

As an unrelated question, am I supposed to mark this [Solved]? I did not see a way to do this or to edit the original title to reflect this?

Faraclas,

If you want to mark the post as solved, edit the title of the orignal post.
