Because the versions of Secure Shell client for platforms other than
Unix/Linux vary quite considerably we only discuss the Unix/Linux version
If you want to be able to login without presenting a password please
read section 10.0.2 on RSA keys. If you do not use RSA keys then
you can use ssh just like rlogin or telnet to login to the remote machine. You
will be asked for your Unix password. However everything you type
is encrypted between your local machine and the remote server so
your password will cannot be viewed. The first time you use either ssh
or scp (secure copy) to connect to a remote machine you will be asked
if you want to continue. Please answer yes (not y
and not Y). Secure shell generates a unique key which identifies
the remote host - so for instance it cannot be easily replaced
by another machine masquerading as that remote host:
[nrcb@mypc]$ ssh vmserve Host key not found from the list of known hosts. Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)? yesIf your remote username is different from the local one you will need to use the syntax:
[nrcb@mypc]$ ssh user@vmservewhere user is your remote username.
