How do I use the SSH Connection Window?

Our SSH Connection interface provides information about how to connect to another web server via the SSH (secure shell) network protocol. The SSH (secure shell) network protocol allows you to connect to another web server over the Internet via a command line interface (CLI). You can use this network protocol to remotely manage your server, configure CGI scripts, and perform other tasks.

Many modern operating systems, such as Mac® OS X and Linux distributions, include SSH. If you use Microsoft Windows® to connect to your server, you must use an SSH client, such as PuTTY, to login using SSH.

 

Connect to your server via SSH

The following sections describe how to connect to your server via various SSH clients.

Using PuTTY

To use PuTTY to connect to your server via SSH, perform the following steps:

  1. Download and install the PuTTY client.

  2. From the Windows Start menu, open the client.

  3. In the Session interface, enter the hostname or IP address of the server in theHost Name (or IP address) text box.

     

  4. Enter the Port number in the Port text box.

    NOTE: Make certain that you select the SSH protocol.

     

  5. Click Open.



Using Mac OS

 

To log in to your Mac OS X or Linux server via SSH, perform the following steps:

Open a terminal session.
