To use SSH to connect to a remote server on Ubuntu, follow these steps:
- Open a terminal window on your local machine.
- Enter the following command to start an SSH session:
username with your username on the remote server, and
remote_server_ip_address with the IP address or hostname of the remote server.
- If this is your first time connecting to the remote server, you may be prompted to verify the server's fingerprint. If you trust the server, type "yes" and press Enter.
- Next, enter your password when prompted. Note that the password will not be displayed as you type it.
- Once you have successfully authenticated, you will be logged in to the remote server and can begin using it as if you were sitting at the terminal.
- To exit the SSH session and return to your local machine's terminal, type exit and press Enter.
That's it! You can now use SSH to remotely access and manage your Ubuntu server.
