Some notes on Linux, perhaps quite old
To install Fedora from the Live User:
- Application->System Tools->Install to Hard Drive
To enable remote access:
- Fedora now defaults to firewall on so you probably need to run:
It may not be installed so need to yum install system-config-firewall. There is another firewall tool used by default, but it isn't yet feature complete so I still use system-config-firewall. Then allow port 22.
Also be sure that sshd is started/enabled:
systemctl enable sshd.service systemctl start sshd.service
