  • How to connect to a Linux Server using SSH ?

    SSH (Secure SHell) is normally used to allow secure encrypted command line connections to a Linux server. It can also be used to create encrypted network tunnels to transport unencrypted data, such as email sessions, FTP, etc.. It provides the best security when accessing another computer remotely...

    Here are the most simple steps on connecting to your Linux server using an SSH Client, PuTTY:

    PuTTY is a client program for the SSH, Telnet and Rlogin network protocols. These protocols are all used to run a remote session on a computer, over a network...
    In other words, you run PuTTY on a Windows machine, to connect to a *nix machine which is accessible over the network.
    ** Download the PuTTY client from HERE.
    ** Run the EXE by double clicking on it.
    ** Enter your server's IP in the hostname/IP section [as shown in the below figure]..

    ** Change the SSH port from the default [22] only if the SSH daemon on the server is set to run on a different one & press the Open button.
    ** Enter root as user name & press ENTER.
    ** Now enter root password [it won't be shown as a security measure] & press ENTER.
    You can get the complete usages about any commands using the man command, you can type "man command", and you will be given a manual page on how the command is used and what it does...

    Mastering SSH will definitely increase your Linux server's productivity & flexibility & enrich your experience in managing, maneuvering the servers far better..

    Have been doing this since 1999
    Since the days of Napster and MasterNap.
    I used to connect to the TekNap.com (Nix program that was also ported to win to run in DOS by Colten Edwards). YOu can chat and download music with it. I learned all my scripting with it too, coded many a script for it. Nerdily enough I still SSH to OpenNap.net for IRC, TekNap and BitchX, and yeah I am too stubborn to leave "the Bitch" hehe.

      even I used old Secure Shell client few years back, but now I use Putty as Putty uses very low amount of system resources. someone who works on 10+ servers at a time can never consider anything else besides putty ( only if you are running windows on your local machine )

      Managing Linux Server Hosting looks really simple with a SSH client like putty. You don't get so much comfort with any other SSH client.

        I've muddled my way through using SSH (a bit of trial and error) but have worked out the basics and how to do things. Wish I had seen this guide when I was struggling though lol

          trial and error? Apparently if errors occur in SSH they're severe .

            lol, you know what I mean! .

            Many a time in the past I've triggered the Brute Force attack protection through messing with the settings. I'm a little more expert in this field now though .
