Arch Linux: Turning on sshd

1. Create RSA key pairs:


Save the generated key pairs as /etc/ssh/ssh_host_rsa_key

2. Turn on sshd service:


3. Check if the service is present:

netstat -antp |grep 22

4. Add a line in /etc/fstab to mount /dev/pts, this is so whenever Arch boots up /dev/pts will be mounted. At the same time mount /dev/pts.

5. Check if /dev/pts is mounted or not:


6. If not mounted:

mount /dev/pts

Notice devpts is mounted to /dev/pts automatically by Arch.
