14.1.12. Enable SSH Access

Question:
How can I enable SSH access to the target system when running with the ELDK file system mounted over NFS?
Answer:
The ELDK includes the dropbear SSH server and client packages (see http://matt.ucc.asn.au/dropbear/dropbear.html). To enable SSH access, you must first generate the SSH host keys for RSA and DSS:
# dropbearkey -t rsa -f /etc/dropbear/dropbear_rsa_host_key
Will output 1024 bit rsa secret key to '/etc/dropbear/dropbear_rsa_host_key'
Generating key, this may take a while...
Public key portion is:
ssh-rsa ...
Fingerprint: md5 ...
# dropbearkey -t dss -f /etc/dropbear/dropbear_dss_host_key
Will output 1024 bit dss secret key to '/etc/dropbear/dropbear_dss_host_key'
Generating key, this may take a while...
Public key portion is:
ssh-dss ...
Fingerprint: md5 ...
Then you can start the dropbear daemon:
# dropbear
Now you should be able to access the target system through SSH.
