I just installed the newest version of Debian and was quite annoyed to discover that neither SSH nor SFTP are enabled after installing. I've gotten SSH to work, but I'm still having trouble with SFTP. Any suggestions?

# aptitude install ssh

should have pretty much done all you needed. Did you install/configure ssh in some other manner (perhaps compiling it yourself, etc)?

Are you talking about using them from you system outbound, or inbound to your system?

The relevant packages are:

  openssh-client - Secure shell client, an rlogin/rsh/rcp replacement
  openssh-server - Secure shell server, an rshd replacement
  ssh - Secure shell client and server (transitional package)

So if you only installed the first in the list, you'd only have outbound connectivity. And etc. for the other two, per descriptions.

Also, have you set up any firewall rules? Without specifically changing things, they might prevent some or all inbound connections.

Otherwise, setting up ssh should by default set up sftp, I believe (at least, that's what's happened for me, IIRC).

I used the synoptic package manager to install ssh, and according to that program openssh-client, openssh-server, and ssh are all installed. I'm trying to connect from my laptop to the Linux computer using sftp. I can connect through ssh.

As far as I know there's no firewall on this computer, I didn't set one up as I have a router with firewall capability already in place. So unless the installer places a firewall.
