Hmm, maybe when you installed ssh you didn't opt to run the ssh server also.
This is easily remidied, however, if this is indeed the case, with most modern
Then anser yes (generally by using the left and right arrows to select yes, then
hitting enter) when it asks you if you'd like to run the sshd server.
As for running telnet, telnet is fine as long as you know your network is private
and secure (eg a private subnet lan of which you are the only user) .. otherwise
your passwords are exposed in cleartext to anyone who cares to listen.
