I found the other day that ubuntu doesn't come with an ssh server installed - very un-unixy if you ask me, but it's easy to get sshd working - you just need to install the openssh server package and then start the daemon. It's a two-line job:

$ sudo apt-get install openssh-server
$ sudo /etc/init.d/ssh restart

You will then be able to log into the system from elsewhere.. there are no default tcp-wrappers or iptables implementations, so locking the box down from there is something you will probably want to consider.
