How to use SSH in Solaris 10?


I m new to Sun Solaris.
I've only changed the PermitRootLogin from no to yes, so that I can login as root from Window vista by using Putty.exe. Then I can create new users and change password.
Except the above configuration, i have do nothing to my SSH server.
Am I need to generate public/private key as I saw at other post? And how? And what else configuration or modification I need to do?
I'm totally have no idea how to make this.

are you not able to log in currently? have you checked to make sure ssh is running??

ps -ef | grep ssh

Changes in the configuration file are only taken into account after the ssh service is restarted.
Either a system reboot or simply:
svcadm restart ssh

SSH is enabled by default , check your services at startup

To create ssh keys, you should read this article.

Thanks ssh is online.

Before generate key, am I need to configure host-based authentication?
