Can someone provide an example of what they mean here in context of Chapter 16:

“Test this by ssh’ing into your own server. Among other things, this will ensure that your known_hosts file is updated.”

My host name is ‘rubix’, and as per the instructions I created a ‘depot.rubix’ hostname. I ssh into it using:

ssh depot.rubix


The first time I do so, I get a warning that “The authenticity of host can’t be established”, and it asks me if I am sure I want to continue connecting. If I say yes, it will add this host to the known_hosts file.

My hostname is so ssh

This returned this:

ssh: connect to host port 22: Connection refused

Looks like I need to enable port 22 somehow… Will google for a while…
