Connect to servers via SSH (Windows)

You log in to your servers via SSH to manage them through command line/shell/bash.

You can use any application, but this document will show you how to use PuTTY on Windows.

  1. From the PuTTY website, download, install, and then launch PuTTY.
  2. In the Host name (or IP address) field, enter your server's public IP address.
  3. Make sure the Port field is set to 22, and the Connection type is set to SSH.
  4. Enter any login names, passwords, or passphrases you're prompted for.

    Note: If you set up an SSH key without a passphrase, you will be logged in automatically.

You can now run commands on your server.
