Hi searchsanjaysharma

just type this as root:
yum install openssh-server.i386 (or .x86_64 if your CentOS is 64 bits)

After installing openssh, just make below change in config file

#vim /etc/ssh/sshd_config

PasswordAuthentication no

:wq

# service sshd restart

Also put your public key inside auth_keys.
