Setting up sshd is pretty easy and very useful. It allows for secure remote terminal usage, tunneling, and much much more.


Install sshd by executing:

emerge -av net-misc/openssh

All that is left is to start sshd.

/etc/init.d/sshd start

And if you want it to be started automatically.

rc-update add sshd default

Then all you need to do is login and you should be on your way.
