You can connect to the server using SSH client. In Linux and MacOS systems this option is built-in, for those from Windows family additional software is required.
Connecting via SSH client is recommended for users experienced with Linux commands. People who are not familiar with terminal should use our company panel (graphical FTP client).
Let’s start with Linux and MacOs. At first we need to run terminal and enter the following command: ssh username@host_address.
(Username can be found in the first e-mail confirming GetLark service purchase). In our case username is skaovhvm with following server name: firstname.lastname@example.org (Server name can be checked/found in Services tab). Once username and server provided we need to click Enter and we will be asked for password.
(Credentials will be included in the confirmation e-mail mentioned above). During the first logon system can raise a question, on which we need to reply YES. Once password filled in we need to click Enter again.
As you can see next to the blinking cursor, username and host name have changed. In this case from inbs-xubuntu@inbsxubuntu to [skaovhm@eu1 ~]. That means that connection to the server has been set. In order to disconnect we need to type exit.
For Windows and Linux there is possibility to install PuTTY software which is good alternative for console.
To set up connection we need to type server’s IP address or name in the field called Host Name (or IP address). (Both can be checked in Services tab) Rest data should remain unchanged. After clicking Open button we will be redirected to the console and asked for credentials. (Login name and password can be found in confirmation e-mail).
TIP: Entered password is not visible.
To disconnect from the server we need to type exit.
