2.2.2. Login Remotely

The console isn’t a very friendly place to work from, so we will now switch to accessing the machine remotely via SSH where we can use copy and paste, etc.
From another host, check whether we can see the new host at all:
beekhof@f16 ~ # ping -c 1
PING ( 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from icmp_req=1 ttl=64 time=1.01 ms

--- ping statistics ---
1 packets transmitted, 1 received, 0% packet loss, time 0ms
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 1.012/1.012/1.012/0.000 ms
Next, login as root via SSH.
beekhof@f16 ~ # ssh -l root
