Downloaded latest Lubuntu x64 image as of July 4th 2018.

Copied the ISO to a 16GB USB jump drive w/ Universal USB Installer 1.9.8.2

After following the install through to completion, I’m ready to start setting up the network and SSH.

I type ‘ifconfig” and surprisingly net-tools are not installed on this image. The terminal displays a command to install net-tools, which I run.

sudo apt install net-tools

I also run a command to check for and install updates.
sudo apt-get update
and
sudo apt-get upgrade

Set static IP via the GUI

Installed SSH Server w/
sudo apt-get install openssh-server

Installed Apache w/
sudo apt-get install apache2
