SSH into Maemo

1. Install roosh (if you have not already).
2. Install OpenSSH (both server and client).
3. Next we have to set a password for the default user.
sudo gainroot
passwd user #user is the username of the default account
#enter your password when prompted
4. Start the ssh server
/etc/init.d/ssh restart #in case if it's already running
Access the phone remotely using ssh as user@the-ip-of-the-phone. You can find the IP address using the ifconfig command.
