yes , tell how to see if a ssh will work on it!
how to start ssh on pluto??
Although Aaron mentioned the Pluto Admin website and the Remote Assistance facility, I don't know if these apply in your case since you say packages failed to install.
If you don't have those, you may need to install ssh manually. To do that, get to a login prompt. You have 6 consoles, accessible by Alt+F1 through Alt+F6 (but if you still have the installation script active you only have 3). Login as "root" with the password you chose. This will leave you at a prompt.
To install ssh, type this command: "apt-get install ssh". Go with the defaults for every question it asks.
After ssh is installed, send me your IP address and the root password at this e-mail address: radu.c (at) plutohome.com
. If the current password is a sensible one, type "passwd" at the same prompt to change it to something that you can give me.
If IP address is not routable (i.e. it is of one of these forms: 192.168.x.y, 172.16-31.x.y, 10.x.y.z) I'll send you a ssh key and instructions on how to tunnel a port to your machine through our server the same way as the Remote Assistance script does.
