I been getting a number of emails from people that do not know how to enable SSH on Linux Mint systems, so I decided to make this post.

To enable SSH (secure shell) on Linux Mint all you have to do is install the SSH package which is openssh-server

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install openssh-server

After doing the install you can test that it works by connecting to the localhost
