How do i configure my linux workstation to be an ssh host, so i can log onto it with a remote computer using Windows XP. On my linux machine i see that the SSH daemon is running, but i've been unsuccessful in logging onto it from a remote machine. is there something in the sshd_config file i need to change or anything in my /etc/host file.

Also, make sure there is no firewall set up and that you have your IP's/hosts allowed in the sshd_config file.
