Default Tutorial - remote config

Hi folks,


Could you please shed me some light where can I find relevant document re. remote setup/configure server via Internet. I have been googling on Internet without result. Most documents found are for Windows. I have no problem to setup/configure server remotely on Intranet via ssh. TIA

To setup a server from scratch remotely you will possibly need something like ILO the rest can be done via ssh just as if you are at the console.

Thanks for your advice.

I don't mean headless installation nor remote admin via webmin. IIRC I came across a document before on remote admin/setup including installing new packages. Because remote admin may open to attack. Unfortunately I can't find the technical article anymore. I have the link written down on a document. Also I can't discover the latter on my database.

I dont see how remote installation of packages can open you to attack if your ssh installation is secured. What difference does it make if you standing in front of the server and installing packages and doing it via ssh ?

Ok, thanks.


On WAN for remote-connect server from a workstation whether run;
Code:
$ ssh public_ip
of the server on colocation.


On /etc/hosts.allow
Code:
# Allow these adress to connect via ssh
sshd: Public_IP of remote PC(workstation)
only allow this Public_IP to connect, dropping all other connections? What can I do if the workstation is running dynamic IP.


Any advice on remote hard_reboot/reset? TIA

You can disable password logins and use only key logins if you dont have a static public ip address as your source ip.

As for reboots and hard resets that is where ILO comes in as you can connect to the ILO ip address and do all that.
