How to SSH from the Linux Terminal

This entry explains how to launch Terminal in Linux, and have the ability to SSH into another Linux computer / server to manage.

1. Start my launching Terminal in Linux. It can be found by going to Applications > Accessories > Terminal. (Keep in mind that Terminal is terminal, so this will work with people that use a Mac, Raspberry Pi, Putty, etc.

2. Type in this command: ssh or ssh you@yourIPaddress Keep in mind when doing this it is understood that you have already setup permissions for accessing the remote terminal.

3. You will then be asked for the remote machines password.

4. You will then see something like this following: The programs included with the Debian GNU/Linux system are free software; the exact distribution terms for each program are described in the individual files in /usr/share/doc/*/copyright.

Debian GBU/Linux comes with ABSOLUTLY NO WARRANTY, to the extent permitted by applicable law.

Last login: Thu Mar 14 5:59 2013 from LOCAL ISP INFORMATION.

5. If you did this correctly you will then have something like this: you@debian:~#

Success! If you have issues leave a comment below, and I will do my best to assist you. Keep in mind that I am relatively new to this so don't beat me up to bad.
