Introduction

SSH stands for Secure Shell sessions. This kind of connection is encrypted from both ends, so from the security aspect, it provides the best security option between two hosts.

Note: Use the default user FTP/SFTP password that you have in your Client Area!

Linux

Open the good old Terminal and do

ssh [email protected]${IP} -p 2222
IP="Your box's IP"

If you want to switch to root, just do

sudo -i

MacOS

Just hit the Command + Spacebar, search for the Terminal App,

And do

ssh [email protected]${IP} -p 2222
Replace the ${IP} variable with the IP of your seedbox

If you want to switch to root, just do

sudo -i

Windows

Before anything else, you need to download one of the following

  1. Putty– widely used software for Windows. It supports SSH, Telnet, Raw, Rlogin, and Serial connections

  2. You might want to use the newer MobaXterm which just looks cool and has a ton of neat features

  3. And the last and most straightforward option would be to install the new Windows Terminal and use it right away by entering the next commands

    ssh [email protected]${IP} -p 2222
    Replace the ${IP} variable with the IP of your seedbox

And if you want to switch to root, just do

sudo -i

If you want to login directly as the root user, please read the next article to learn how to do it
