SSH

SSHShort for Secure Shell, SSH (developed by SSH Communications Security Ltd.) is a secure protocol for remote logins. Using an SSH client, a user can connect to a server to transfer information in a more secure manner than other methods, such as telnet. The image to the right is an example of how an SSH session, which uses a command line interface, may look.

Tip: SSH defaults to port 22.
