SSH Basic Installation: Testing

  • You can now test the setup by doing a console login using ssh username@ip-address, where username is a user on the remote machine (for which you know the password), and ip-address is the external ip-addres of the machine to which you are trying to connect.

  • Routers typically call this the WAN IP, and is the address of the machine on the network you use to connect to the machine (typically the internet).
