enable / allow ssh scp in linux

By default the ssh doesn't come with the installation box. Thus you have to install the ssh.

sudo apt-get install ssh

Once it installs the ssh it starts up the services as well. so you should be able to do ssh and stuff now to you Linux machine remotely.

this is exactly what I was looking for... after about 15 topics on several forums finding out why doesnt my scp work and what does its error message "connection refused" mean, all of them talking about settings and trying from both sides of connection to find the source of the problem, I found this one and I was like "oh gosh, could this be it?? omg" and yeah, this was my issue :) so thanks

Fixed winscp "Connection Refused" error from remote server via sftp.

Probably a good reason this doesn't come in the standard build.
