How to change .bashrc prompt for logging in via SSH.
 
How do I change the .bashrc file to look different when using ssh to access my machine but stay the same for local logins? Thanks in advance.

When login by ssh the $SSH_TTY variable is set.

Code:

if [ ! -n "$SSH_TTY" ]; then
  export PS1="\[\e[32;1m\][\u@\[\e[34;1m\]\H \W]# \[\e[0m\]"  # Local login
else
  export PS1="ssh-\[\e[32;1m\][\u@\[\e[34;1m\]\H \W]# \[\e[0m\]" # Ssh Login
fi
