ssh and scp
Connecting to servers via ssh:
You can use 'ssh [email protected]' to connect to any linux server. You will be asked for a password to authenticate.
If ssh server on remote server is running on a non-default port (default is 22) then you need to use the following command.
ssh -p 8822 [email protected]
You can also setup your connection using public/private ssh keys so that you do not need to specify a password everything you login.
First generate your ssh keys:
ssh-keygen -t rsa # press return key few times
Copy newly generated public key to the server:
ssh-copy-id [email protected]
For non-standard ssh port (like 8822) use -p as below
ssh-copy-id -p 8822 [email protected]
