Re: ssh tutorial

Many thanks.
This is a great tutorial.
It helps to learn basic uses of ssh.
I was looking for this.
It saved my time from googling and reading long "man ssh" page.

One last thing,reading other mail from fedora-list I knew that I
must be the ssh administrator for log-in using ssh.

How can I be the ssh administrator?Is it possible for me?
Or is there any ssh server(free) where I can log-in using ssh without bothering about being ssh server administration or concerning of having an account in remote computer by the ssh administration.
