Of course, as always. Therefore you shouldn't use easy-to-guess passwords such as "hello".
You could use private/public key authentication instead. This is partly described here: http://www.howtoforge.com/linux_rdiff_backup

Seems like what I'm looking for, I only want that server to be accessible by ssh from one other pc here at home.

During install of ISPconfig RSA and DSA keys and the "snake oil" certificate was made so I guess I'm already pretty close here..


Thanks again !

These Certificates are only for the SSL encryption of the ISPConfig webserver, they are not for SSH connections.
