It should just *work* once it's installed.

apt-get/aptitude/wajig/{and others} are the programs that you can use to
install software in debian from a repository.  Just type

apt-get install ssh 

to install the ssh package which includes both the client and the
server.  If you want it to run at start up, pick "yes" when prompted.
