Access backtrack from remote computer using ssh & vnc.

If  you want to access your local computer through remote computer ; first you need configure ssh daemon .Because nowadays people are not using telnet due to plain text protocol.

How to configure ssh in Backtrack 5 r3?


(1)First we have to generate ssh key.So type following in terminal.

ssh-keygen

It will generate public/private rsa key pair.By default location of keys is /root/.ssh/id_rsa

cd /etc/ssh
mkdir keys

(3)Now copy generated keys from /root/.ssh/id_rsa & paste into keys folder which we create in second step.

 dpkg-reconfigure openssh-server


(5)Now we have to start ssh daemon ; so type following in terminal
service ssh start
 
(6)Now everything is setup ; you can use your ssh server via remote machine.
For windows you can also use putty like software.If you are on linux machine than type following command.
ssh -l "username" 192.168.56.1(i.p.)
