    Help Needed .. in a bad way ...

    Guys and Gals

    I've got a bit of a problem my Windows XP laptop has died - I've burnt a cd with Knoppix on it - and it boots fine. My Linux abilities are a bit rusty and well thin on the ground - I need to transfer files off the HD so I need to get SSH working so I can connect to the laptop from another windows machine.

    Each time I run SSHD I get could not load host key..

    Can anyone shed some light how to get this up and running

    Any help gratefully appreciated.

    Cheers

    Junior

    ssh-keygen -t dsa -f /etc/ssh/ssh_host_dsa_key -N "passphrase"
    ssh-keygen -t rsa -f /etc/ssh/ssh_host_rsa_key -N "passphrase"

    If your goal is to get the files off to another windows machine, I'd recommend the easy approach. Start the ftp daemon on the Knoppix side, then use a windows ftp client on the good side. Not quite as secure, but much less pain than ssh for a temporary fix.

    --Actually, did you try ' /etc/init.d/ssh start ' as root?
