The combination of hostname and domain name will be used to create the key pair. Modulus is the key length. Cisco recommends that a key length of at least 1024 bits be used. The default key length for general purposes keys is 512 bits. It can take some time to select a key module larger than 512. PuTTY allows you to log in to your server. After connecting, you’ll see a window with the login prompt for your Linux server. After you have completed the credentials, the main prompt will appear for your Linux server.

SSH uses port 22 for encryption and terminal services. A few years back, Telnet was the preferred protocol for communicating with remote hosts and controlling them. FTP is a more secure option for modern hosting environments. Most likely, your web host will grant you access to the SSH servers. Your current SSH console window will remain open to the SSH server until you verify that your key and password are valid. SSH can be used to access the server.
Please use the Questions button in the upper right corner to ask any questions. This configuration will redirect all traffic to the remote machine’s port 88080 from the local computer. Traffic will be directed to the localhost port 80 by the remote end. All traffic coming from remote web servers will be encrypted by the SSH tunnel. To save your Putty import key, click on the Save private keys button. This key will enable you to connect via Putty with remote servers. Start pageant.exe now. The pageant will save you your passphrase so that you don’t have to type it each time you connect. The pageant will add an icon to your taskbar. Click the icon to add a key. Login to the client from which you created the SSH Key Pair public/private, and enter your passphrase. If you are using a different computer than the one on which the key pair was created, the private key must be copied to your computer. Install an SSH client to allow communication with your web host. Your authorization credentials and your IP address will be required to access the SSH server. You will have access to all of this information via your web host.
