What is the difference between SSH and SSL, which is used for secured connections over HTTP ? Is it also possible to use something like a SSH - Port for secure WebSites???

Hey dude. SSL is the Secure Socket Layer (i.e. an internet connection that is encrypted). SSH is a Secure Shell. SSH is pretty much (for simplicity sake) Telnet using SSL to make it more secure.

SSL is what is used by Web servers, and really any type of server coded to use it.

Where would one find a good tutorial (online) about setting up SSH on OS X?

Thanks,

10.1 comes with SSH installed. Just activate the "Allow remote login" checkbox in the Sharing control panel. Then you can SSH into your user account from any computer using a SSH client.
