Start a SSH Session in the Terminal


Hi,

I cannot seem to find on the internet a simple guide how to start a ssh session to a remote linux machine, I have a vps and the only way i can access it is with zoc in Windows or using Webmin when I boot into Linux.

There must be a simple guide somewhere, something like starting the ftp thing

Like

$ftp
ftp> open ftp.linux.com
name.login>admin
name.password>********

Something similiar would be perfect or a link.

Many Thanks
Stuart

If you are also looking for a good Windows client, I just started using PuTTY. Simple to set up for connections to different machines.

I needed a way of connecting to my home server from Win98 and this works great.

as long as sshd is running on the remote linux box, then you can just

ssh mcd@youraddress.com

ssh mcd@192.168.1.104

or whatever. there are a lot of other options you can play around with too.
