How to log onto your Self-Managed server

If my PC/ Workstation is using Windows:

Option 1:

To access your server via SSH you need to have a Windows SSH client such as Putty installed on your workstation:

  1. Click on ‘Start’ and select ‘Run’
  2. In the command line type in putty -ssh root@[first usable IP] then hit ENTER
  3. Your username is “root” ; you can then enter your root password

Option 2:

You can use Telnet to access your server from your command line:

  1. Click on ‘Start’ and select ‘Run’
  2. In the command line type : telnet hostname or telnet hostname :port (for a specific port)
  3. Your username is “root” ; you can then enter your root password
