How do i get an ssh connection to DH site

I have been using ftp for years now, but never used ssh to connect to a site. I looked at the wiki for SSH (as recommended by a post) but when i tried to log in thru terminal (osX) i got the “welcome to…”

but then it says “this account only allows ftp connections. connection now closed”

i am using my admin user/pass. any ideas why this is not working?

thanks in advance,

You have to enable ssh/telnet access under the user -> manage users section of the dreamhost control panel.
