How do you enable SSH CLI on Cisco 2960 Switch?

Can you please help with configuring the following on cisco ws-c2960-24 ttl:

2.PORT SECURITY REMOVAL: Limits MAC@per port with no shutdown
3.Set port to protect
4.Set RSTP
5. Finally how do i set up TFTP Server from windows server 2008

1) for ssh enabling

line vty 0 4
transport input ssh
login local

Please click here for Cisco documentation on SSH Config.

2) For Port security removal
conf t
no switchport port-security

Please click here for Cisco documentation on Port Security

3) for securing over mac
conf t
Switch(config)# interface gig 0/1
Switch(config-if)# switchport port-security mac-address ?
  H.H.H   48 bit mac address
  sticky  Configure dynamic secure addresses as sticky

4) Set port to protect
conf t
Switch(config)# interface gigabitethernet0/1
Switch(config-if)# switchport protected

5) Set RSTP
MSTP—This spanning-tree mode is based on the IEEE 802.1s standard. You can map multiple VLANs to the same spanning-tree instance, which reduces the number of spanning-tree instances required to support a large number of VLANs. The MSTP runs on top of the RSTP (based on IEEE 802.1w), which provides for rapid convergence of the spanning tree by eliminating the forward delay and by quickly transitioning root ports and designated ports to the forwarding state. In a switch stack, the cross-stack rapid transition (CSRT) feature performs the same function as RSTP. You cannot run MSTP without RSTP or CSRT

Please click here for Cisco documentation on RSTP

Needs to install tftp in the server and you must be able to ping the router/switch from the tftp server and able to telnet the ports of tftp server and vice versa.
