How to connect with you VPS via SSH on Windows

There are many SSH clients available for Windows but I like Putty because of its lightweight and functionailty. The size of putty is less than 1MB and works on every Windows OS.

  1. Download Putty from this link
  2. Open putty.exe and enter IP address of your SSH Server.
  3. Change port if required, if not changed then 22 is the default SSH port.
  4. Click Connect to connect with your SSH server. You can also save multiple addresses for 1-click connection in future.

  1. Open Terminal from applications.
  2. Type this command, ssh user@IPaddress and press Return key.
  3. Terminal will prompt for password, enter the password for user and you should now have SSH access to your server.

Don’t forget to replace user with your user and IPaddress with your server IP address.

Connect via SSH on Android Device.

Just like windows and many other OS, Android also has many SSH Clients but I recommend JuiceSSH.

  1. Just download and install JuiceSSH from link given below.
    connect SSH on windows, Mac OS, Android
  2. Open JuiceSSH and add new connection.
  3. Insert Ip address and login details. One thing I like the most is that juiceSSH saves your login details as well as IP address which lets you login to SSH with just 1-click.
