    In order to generate SSH key pair for your Linux dedicated server, you will have to use the ssh-keygen command. This command has to be operated in the command line. You will be asked for a file name and password for the key. For more details, please visit: https://www.webhosting.uk.com/kb/how...icated-server/

    Utter novice here. Managed to set up an Ubuntu server and download SSH server to it as well as puTTY on another (windows) computer. Apparently to connect to my server now I just need to use [email protected] Only one user on the server, and I know the hostname but whenever I try the command it just times out. I've made sure port 22 is open and not blocked by firewall. I've been trying all day to get this to work but to be honest even the beginners guides are somewhat confusing. For example, snaptube vidmate most ask that you know the server's IP - but isn't it the client that has an IP? When I try and find the servers IP its just 192.168.1.1 or some other IP that doesn't uniquely identify it.

    Hello,
    Follow the steps to connect Linux Shared Server with SSH
    • Open Putty, under Connection click SSH, then Auth.
    • Click Browse under Private key file for authentication, then select the private key you downloaded in the last section, and click Open.
    • Click Session and under port enter: 2222
    • For the Host Name, enter your domain name, or shared IP address,then click the Open button to connect. If you see a PuTTY Security Alert, click Yes.
    • You will see "Login As". Please enter your cPanel username and then hit Enter.
    • After that, enter the password for your key file and hit Enter. For security reasons, PuTTY will not show anything when you type your password, it is normal. You will then be logged into your account via SSH.
