Once you are familiar with the Unix Command Line Interface, working on a remote computer is very easy.

Using SSH, you can connect to another computer, and use the Command-Line Interface as if you were working on that physical machine.

All you need is the computer's hostname (IP-address or hostname) and an account to login with.

ssh $username@$hostname

For example:


The first time, you will be asked to accept the Security Certificate. Type yes and press Return to continue.

Then you can enter your password. A session is started on the other machine and off you go!
