i enjoy the command line although i'll admit i don't know enough to use it as efficiently as many.

ssh stands for secure shell. Open terminal, type
ssh servername.serverdomain

, and you're there. Don't we become obsessed with GUIs too much?

 

 

use a non-standard port, forward/tunnel a few ports, etc... and you discover it's a pain to do from the command line unless you write a script for it.

 

PuTTY works great but I think it's windows only?

use konqueror as gui then

 

fish://user@host

 

Or fish through Dolphin. (hm? fish-dolphin?)

mkdir ~/.ssh

add configs into a file called ~/.ssh/config

 

example:


Host colosus.18londonst.co.nz
User paulw
Port 4755

Host donk
User paul
Port 4755

Host oink
User root
Port 4755

Host home.loudas.com
User root
Port 4755

then

ssh donk

uses the user and custom port by default

Sweet Paul,

 

Never knew about that config file thing, but using it now, works a treat :thumbs:
