SSH Access

SSH Access

SSH stands for "secure shell". It replaces the older, much less secure, TELNET feature. Advanced users take advantage of this tool to perform many different server administration tasks.  By default, SSH access is turned OFF on shared accounts.  Activating this feature does increase the risk of unauthorized access as it is a favorite tool used by hackers. It is suggested you enable this feature only when you need it then disable it again when finished.

To Enable SSH:  click the "Enable SSH" checkbox and click "process".

 Helpful Hint...

You can find many good SSH clients on the Net.  Some of our favorites are Putty, which is a free client, and SecureCRT, which is a much more powerful, but not free, client.

 Be Careful...

SSH is a powerful tool.  With a single typo you can wipe out your entire server.  Make sure you know what you are doing.  If in doubt, stick with Appies tools.  These are built with many protection features in place.
