SSH access

I need to access the server externally from outside.  I do not see port 22 listening on that server. What do I need to install on that box to listen on 22.  Some sort of SSH Server software?
This is for Windows Server 2008.
Please advice.

So I need to dial a public IP for that server, load SSH server for Windows, open port 22, config a public DNS, static NAT to point to the DNS record.  Anything else?
Anything I should be aware as a security precautions?

you mean >> In you firewall NAT map a public IP w.x.y.z.Port 2222 to your Windows 2008 Box Port 22?
Yes !  Or any other Port but do not use the standard 22 on the public side, it will get probed constantly.
What about >> Generate and Configure your Key pairs.  Is this a part of Open SSH server part?
Should be --

Also if you use the Putty Client there is a keygen in that software as well.
Awesome.  Anything else missing?
