  • Need help with SSH.

    I need to use SSH. What program do you use to access your site with SSH?

      I just downloaded putty, when I ran the program and entered my username and password the black screen disappeared. Do you know why this happened?

        When you launch putty...do the following:

        1. In hostname(ip address) type the ip address of your host
        2. under protocol, select "ssh"
        3. when prompted, enter your username
        4. when prompted, enter your password


        If the "black screen" appears after you've done those, there should be a command prompt(similar to the dos prompt in windows) -- this is where you type your commands.

            it all depends on what you want to do, I guess. If you wish to access an SSH server to get it's files on a Windows PC, I'd use WinSCP

            If in Linux, I just use command line. If in Windows, and you wish to control a Linux PC, I'd use PuTTY.

              linux command line

              Just remove your windows OS - put Ubuntu on instead and just ssh from the terminal - way easy

                Use Putty SSH client. If you have a personal SSH key when you will need to use SSH keygen which can be downloaded from Putty official website.

                  As mentioned above,I also recommend putty.But I'd like to say that you should make sure you have the permission of use SSH.In other words,if your site was hosted on a shared server,but they do not allow SSH.
