I am a Windows user. And recently started using freya for learning. I need to install and configure putty for the SSH. I am not sure how to download and install it. Is there any command I have to run in terminal?.

For what it's worth, elementary comes with an SSH client (as do most flavors of Linux). You can start an SSH session by opening Terminal and running the following command:

ssh your-username@name-of-server.com

  • Yep, it should connect to just about any Linux server. I've used this command in the past on elementary to connect to a Linux VPS running CentOS. It worked like a charm. Sep 30, 2016 at 15:38
