    Hello, I was wondering if I could have a SSH server on my PC at home and connect to it with my Mac at school. The program that'll run the SSH Server would be OpenSSH. I heard that Mac has some SSH thing built in to terminal but i dont know what to do. Thanks in advance.:mad:

    OS X has SSH server and client built in.

    To SSH to your PC at home you'll need to forward relevant ports on your router, then from Terminal just type "ssh ipaddress blah blah". "man ssh" should give you a full blown explanation of what you can do.

    The difficult thing is configuring the server and your router. Once
    that's done, you can easily ssh in from OS X. The ssh program is
    ready and waiting in Terminal.app.

    Whilst OS X has a inbuilt SSH Client (and server) your PC doesn't.

    If you want to connect FROM the Mac , TO the PC, you will need to install a ssh server on the PC.

    One option you have here is to use cygwin to create a 'unix' environment on the Windows machine and run an ssh server inside that environment. A google search turned up this link which seems like a fairly comprehensive run through.
