Shell access to DreamHost from Windows?


#1

I can’t figure how to get shell access to my DreamHost account from Windows (XP SP3). I use FileZilla to ftp files, but would like to know how to run PHP programs directly at DreamHost.

Yeah, PuTTy rocks! Try out WinSCP too.

You can link PuTTy from within WinSCP (options > preferences > applications), creating a snappy and ergonomic workbase for messing with your online stuff. Makes life easier!

Yessirs!

I looked at PuTTy once, even tried it–was not impressed, far from obvious. Will go back and look again.

Thanks for the counsel.
