Linux: SSH issues on Kali

Starting SSH on boot Kali 2.x

SSH won’t start at boot on Kali 2.0?

Don’t worry, it’s because Kali 2.x is based on Debian 8, as opposed to Kali 1.x being based on Debian 7.

Kali 1.x uses init/update-rc.d;

Kali 2.x uses systemd/systemctl

For Kali 1.x, the command is

#update-rc.d -f ssh defaults

For Kali 2.x, the command is

#systemctl enable ssh.service
Starting ssh on boot kali 2.x
sudo systemctl enable ssh.service

And that’s it, you are done. Feel free to leave comments
