Mint 15: SSH on LiveCD and start: Unknown job: ssh
I needed to access a machine running on a Linux Mint 15 Live CD (USB stick). SSH server was as usual not installed, so I installed it. Among the usual output was the following error: start: Unknown job: ssh And when trying to remote into the machine I got connection refused. The SSH daemon was not started. I tried service ssh start but got the same error as above when I installed it. Following this thread and messing around a bit myself I managed to get it to work: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1895174&page=2 This is what I did to make SSH work on a live usb stick: Opened a terminal sudo bash passwd mint <type in a simple password> apt-get install openssh-server initctl reload-configuration service ssh start Then I went to the other machine and logged in with username mint and the password I typed: ssh <machine-name> -l mint
