Native OpenSSH on Windows 10

Just found accidentally, OpenSSH server as well as client are available in Windows 10 Professional 1709 (Fall Creators Update).

You can enable it under Settings -> Apps & features -> Manage optional features -> Add a feature -> OpenSSH Client (Beta) and OpenSSH Server (Beta).

win10-openssh-install

Remember to turn off Windows firewall for ssh (port 22) to access your machine remotely using ssh and/or putty.

Installation of ssh server for debian-in-android (gnuroot)

Update (2014-11-20): After rebooting the phone, the the sshd (openssh-server) failed to start again (some error message like “chroot /var/run/sshd” failed). So the reliable way is still using dropbear.

Update (2014-11-06): I can install openssh-server successfully under gunroot.  No special tricks (don’t why it failed in my first trial) except changing the port to > 1024 (/etc/ssh/sshd_config) and chmod og-rwx /etc/ssh/*.  After the modification, issue /etc/init.d/ssh start

Unlike traditional debian machine, you cannot install/run openssh-server inside a debain-in-android (gnuroot).  However, dropbear can be used instead.

Steps:

– Install android app GNURoot.

– Install android app, GNURoot Wheezy.

– Inside Debian terminal, install dropbear (apt-get intall dropbear).

– Modify /etc/default/dropbear and change the DROPBEAR_PORT to anything > 1024.

– (Update on 2014-07-04) Start the dropbear: /etc/init.d/dropbear start
