Step 6: Add SSH and password shadow files to /opt/.filetool.lst

tiny core runs on RAM and resets to original after reboot. In order to persist the configuration, you need to manually store the files and directories to be backed up at this file. Also remember to manually backup using command in Step 6

$ sudo echo ‘/usr/local/etc/ssh’ >> /opt/.filetool.lst

$ sudo echo ‘/etc/shadow’ >> /opt/.filetool.lst

 

Step 7: Verify content of filetool.lst

$ cat /opt/.filetool.lst

 

Step 8: Automatically start SSH service at startup

$ sudo vi /opt/bootlocal.sh

Add following line to start SSH service

/usr/local/etc/init.d/openssh start

 

Step 9: Back it up

$ filetool.sh -b

 

Optional: In another tiny-core lnux, install putty to verify connection to SSH server

$ tce-load -wi putty

Putty shortcut is created on the menu bar and can be used to verify connection to SSH server
