Here is the video version, if you prefer it:
To connect to a remote host (remote computer), use
ssh. (Shotts, 2019)
ssh will allow you to use the command line as if you were physically present on the other computer’s Terminal. The computer you are connecting to needs to run ssh server and you need to be running ssh client.
if you want to connect with a different username other than the username on your local machine.
Note: You most likely won’t be using this if you are a desktop user, but if you are a programmer, you will most likely at least sometimes be required to connect to a machine remotely.
Thank you for reading!
