All you need to do to initiate an SSH connection in Linux is open a shell prompt and execute the following command:
user@localhost: ssh USER@HOST_NAME -pPORT
- USER - the user for which you want to establish the SSH connection.
- HOST_NAME (or IP address) - here you should enter the host/IP of the server to which you wish to connect;
- PORT - the port for the connection;
Press "Enter" and if everything has been set up properly, you will establish an SSH connection to your account.
