In this tutorial I’ll show you how to install the VMware Tools for Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander Guest machine.
VMware Tools is a suit of drivers and utilities that enhances both the performance of the virtual machine and interaction between the guest and the host. It’s not required to be installed, but most of VMware users do install.

To get started, boot the guest system on your host and follow the steps below:
1.) Get the command prompt by Ctrl+Alt+T, then run below command to install required packages first:
SSH service is not enabled by default in Ubuntu both Desktop and Server, but you can easily enable it just by one command. Works on Ubuntu 13.04, 12.04 LTS, 10.04 LTS and all other releases.
And the command is:
sudo apt-get install openssh-server
It installs OpenSSH server, then automatically enable ssh remote access.
OpenSSH is a FREE version of the SSH connectivity tools that technical users of the Internet rely on. Users of telnet, rlogin, and ftp may not realize that their password is transmitted across the Internet unencrypted, but it is.

Additionally, OpenSSH provides secure tunneling capabilities and several authentication methods, and supports all SSH protocol versions.
You can edit the config file “/etc/ssh/sshd_config” to change default port 22, remember to apply changes via the command below:
