How can I enable SSH service?

Briefly describe your issue below:

I got this message while I want to enable SSH service:
#systemctl enable ssh
Syncronising state of ssh.service with SysV service script with /lib/systemd/systemd-sysv-install.
Executing: /lib/systemd/systemd-sysv-install enable ssh

What version of Parrot are you running? 4.9.1

What method did you use to install Parrot? Install from Live system

Configured to multiboot with other systems? I have not any other OS

try this:

sudo systemctl enable ssh
sudo systemctl start ssh

Should work :slight_smile:

?

No!
I want to use Parrot Security for the penetration test, So I have not any time to debug this distro while it using the testing version of Debian.

@Mohammad_Badie_Zadeg I ran into the same problem, but the issue resolved itself after running apt update && apt upgrade -y and restarting.

Also having a similar problem and seems not to be able to fix it with all the ideas presented. Please any help or the issue is still unfix able. :expressionless:
Please any one with a different idea on how to ?

Ok so this fixed it for me…

sudo apt-get remove --purge openssh-server
 sudo apt-get install openssh-server
