How to enable SSH Server in Manjaro Linux?
Below I present how to enable and launch SSH service on Manjaro Linux, based on CinderCloud VPS, in a few simple steps:
1. Install OpenSSH (if needed)
[tuxfixer@manjaro ~]$ sudo pacman -S openssh
Note: On fresh Manjaro installation OpenSSH service should be installed by default (OS release: 16.06 – as of writing this post).
2. Verify SSH Service status
[tuxfixer@manjaro ~]$ sudo systemctl status sshd.service
Note: OpenSSH service should be disabled by default.
3. Edit SSH Daemon config file (if needed)
[tuxfixer@manjaro ~]$ sudo nano /etc/ssh/sshd_config
4. Enable and launch SSH Service
[tuxfixer@manjaro ~]$ sudo systemctl enable sshd.service
[tuxfixer@manjaro ~]$ sudo systemctl start sshd.service
5. Test SSH connectivity
Try to connect to your Manjaro SSH Server from Client machine:
[tuxfixer@client ~]$ ssh firstname.lastname@example.org The authenticity of host '192.168.2.59 (192.168.2.59)' can't be established. ECDSA key fingerprint is SHA256:W5Gem3BN7Dyhxm0qUMIQBV6ZI9HnJSYEVEKJtZ7clyg. ECDSA key fingerprint is MD5:24:ef:a5:07:af:29:0a:e2:20:14:f5:a5:f4:c2:05:38. Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)? yes Warning: Permanently added '192.168.2.59' (ECDSA) to the list of known hosts. email@example.com's password: [tuxfixer@manjaro ~]$
