Setting up SSH¶
Secure Shell (SSH) provides a secure channel to access a Linux machine remotely via command line.
Windows doesn’t come with an ssh client natively, however you can download and install PuTTY to give you a nice SSH client.
Linux and Mac¶
If you’re already running Linux or have a Mac laptop, you already have an ssh installed. For the Mac, simply open up the Terminal.app. For Linux, you can use something like Gnome Terminal, Terminator or xterm to name a few.
