At some point, you might find yourself needing to remote into a Linux machine. When that eventuality occurs, you'll need SSH. This article introduces you to this handy Linux command.

If you ever have to do any remote administration, at some point you're going to have to log into a Linux server and get to work. To do that, you're going to need to use SSH (aka Secure Shell). For those that have never been exposed to such a tool, you're in for a treat.

SSH is a secure means of logging into a remote machine. Once logged in, you can run any command you need to work with the server. Before you think that using SSH is difficult, fret not. Using SSH is not only fairly easy, but it's also really quite powerful.
