I have just downloaded and installed Fedora 13. I need to connect to this system through a telnet and/or ssh session. However, I do not have any idea what needs to be done to accomplish that.

Anyone out there who can help?

1) # su - (to login as root)
2) # cd /etc/init.d
3) # nmap localhost (to see what all services are running)
4) # service sshd start (to start the ssh service)
5) # nmap localhost (again run nmap to see if ssh has started running)

You can start any services using the "service <servicename> start" command. 'start' can be replaced with 'stop', 'status', 'restart' to see respective results.
