HOW TO: SSH using PuTTY

HOW TO SSH TO THE SERVER

 

DO NOTE: For our servers, we use SSH PORT: 44200 for security reasons.

 

 

Download PuTTY

Use the following steps to download and open PuTTY:

  1. Download PuTTY from the PuTTY website.

    Ensure that you comply with the license requirements.

  2. Launch the client.

 

Configure your connection

Use the following steps to configure your connection:

  1. In the PuTTY Configuration window, enter the following values:

    • In the Host Name field, enter the Internet Protocol (IP) address of your Cloud Server.
    • Ensure that the connection type is set to SSH.
    • (Optional) In the Saved Sessions field, assign a name for this connection. Assigning a name saves time the next time that you use Putty. You can assign a different name for each of your Cloud Servers.
  2. Click Open.

 

Accept the key

If this is the first time that you have used PuTTY to log in to your server with SSH, a warning similar to the following one displays:

The server’s host key is not cached in the registry. You have no guarantee
that the server is the computer you think it is. The server’s rsa2 key
fingerprint is: <string>. If you trust this host, hit **Yes** to add the key to
PuTTY’s cache and carry on connecting. If you want to carry on connecting just
once, without adding the key to the cache, hit No. If you do not trust this
host, hit Cancel to abandon the connection.

If you are sure that you have entered the correct information, click Yes.

Subsequent connections do not show this warning because the host key is now cached in the registry of your local computer. You can expect to see that warning, however, if you connect to your server from a different computer.

 

Enter your username and password

After you accept the warning, the terminal prompts you for your username and password.

If this is the first time that you are logging in to the server, you must log in as the root user.

When you are prompted for the password for the root user, enter the current root password for this server. The password at is not echoed to the screen. Then, press Enter.

If you have entered the correct root password, the prompt responds with a shell prompt:

[root@yourservername ~]#

Now you can work on your server with all permissions.
