Linux: Starting SSH on boot Kali 2.x – autostart SSH

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;
For Kali 1.x, the command is

update-rc.d ssh enable

Kali 2.x uses systemd/systemctl
For Kali 2.x, the command is

systemctl enable ssh.service
