The OpenSSH client is a separately installable component of Windows Server 2019 and Windows 10 1809 or higher. Users with these versions of Windows should follow the instructions below to install and configure OpenSSH.
To install OpenSSH, start Settings and go to Applications> Applications and features> Manage optional features.
Check this list to see if the OpenSSH client is already installed. If not, at the top of the page, select "Add a feature" and search for "OpenSSH Client" and then click "Install".
To install OpenSSH with PowerShell, first start PowerShell as administrator. To make sure that the OpenSSH features are available for installation, follow these steps:
Let's first look for the OpenSSH package:
Get-WindowsCapability -Online | ? Name -like 'OpenSSH*'
Once the package is found, we will perform the installation:
Add-WindowsCapability -Online -Name OpenSSH.Client~~~~0.0.1.0
Once installed, we will open a new PowerShell window to make the SSH connection:
ssh -p 2200 usuario@IP_Del_Cloud
In other versions of Windows, you can use Putty, which is an alternative to connect to a server via SSH. You can download the application for free at https://www.putty.org/
Steps to connect to the server:
To make the connection we only have to configure 3 parameters:
Click on "Open" and a window will open with the Terminal.
Login to: our_user our_user@our_ip's password: (as you type it will not display)
Once you have written the password, press "enter" and you will be on the server, it's that easy.
To close the connection we only have to write "exit".
