[SOLVED] How to turn on ssh server remotely

view story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – Is there a way to remotely turn the ssh server on or transfer files without the ssh server running? I tried scp and ftp without success. I am away from my work computer for several days and forgot to start the ssh server (ever since I updated to OpenSUSE 12.2, the ssh server does not start automatically even when I select it to in Yast). Thanks (HowTos)
