Overview

You can use SSH to access your server remotely, or, if you use a Windows® PC, you can use PuTTY.

Remember:

After you connect to your server, regardless of how you connect to it, you must run POSIX-standardized commands to manipulate files.

 

Access your server remotely via SSH

To access your server remotely via SSH, perform the following steps:

  1. Use your preferred application to open the command line interface.
  2. Run the ssh root@$IP command (where $IP represents your target server's IP address).
  3. Enter your server's root password.

 

Access your server from a Windows PC

To use PuTTY to access your server from a Windows PC, perform the following steps:

  1. Download and install the client from the PuTTY site.
  2. Open the client.
  3. In the Sessions menu, enter your server's IP address.

    Note:

    Make certain to select the SSH button.
