Ssh help example


#1

Hello,

I have managed and tested sftp with filezilla ftp software.

I am new to linux command lines (bash - ubuntu) and i would like to master ssh connection to my dreamhost ftp machine.

I have read dreamhost ssh which was found not clearly understood. I am best learnt by working examples.

ftp account: oslo.dreamhost.com
ftp username: mruser
ftp password : password

my domain: workingdoman.com
subdomain: sub.workingdomain.com

Also I already have .ssh set up and used for github.com

So how can I do it with command lines using examples as shown above?

Thanks kindly in advance

Assuming you have shell access setup for the user in the DH panel

On your machine in a shell type

  1. ssh mruser@oslo.dreamhost.com
  2. type in the password when prompted
  3. Accept the key from the server

done.
