SSH Module

This module will install and configure a ssh server.


Minimal server configuration

class { 'ssh': }

This will do the typical install, configure and service management. Default port is 2202 root login is forbidden by default, so is password authentification

class { 'ssh':
  allowed_extra           => [ '' ],
  port                    => 22,

  password_authentication => 'yes,
  motd                    => true,
