In this guide we will connect to a remote Linux box over SSH. You don’t need any third party applications in order to connect to remote Linux servers over SSH.
Go to Applications > Utilities, and open Terminal.
Once in terminal, run SSH. Replace
your_ip with your own.
If you receive a warning about RSA key fingerprint, type
yes and press
ssh root@your_ipThe authenticity of host '188.8.131.52 (192.168.1.100)' can't be established. RSA key fingerprint is 47:ff:76:c2:211:0f:11:15:21:bd:92:2f:44:0a:a9:0a. Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)?
You will be prompted for your password. Enter your password and press
ENTER. Note that as you type the password, stars or dots are not shown in Linux.
Enter the root password for this server. The password does not echo to the screen.
You should now be connected via SSH. To test, you can try running the
date command. Type
date and press
root@server:~$ date Tue Mar 13 11:26:53 CET 2018
