I actually had a virus run through my putt-putt computer recently so I had to start from stratch again. So this time, I didn't get FTP but SSH to manage my files but I have been having trouble with the initial log on. Is it because I don't remember the password? Username? Or just don't get how you use it?

I've read and re-read that post with stellar tutorials on using it but its not connecting me. I'll try again tomorrow but does anyone have advice?

What exactly isn't working? What message(s) do you get? And when you say "SSH" I assume you mean SCP or SFTP (CoPy or FTP through SSH) What program are you using? WinSCP, or something else?


I guess I all I needed was time to figure things out cus I fiddled with it and figured everything out. I'm going fiddle with this for a few hours more so I can get the hang of it.

Thanks for responding promptly though. I appreciate it.
