  • A typical use of ssh would be:
    
    ssh jjones@mybox.somebusiness.com
    
    where "mybox.somebusiness.com" would be the URL of the computer you want to connect to, and "jjones" would be your username on that machine. Before you are connected, the password needs to be entered for that username.

    If your username on the local machine in this same as on the remote machine you can use the command:

    
    ssh mybox.somebusiness.com
    

    You can directly issue a command on the remote machine as follows:

    
    ssh jjones@mybox.somebusiness.com ps
    
    which will execute the ps command and show a list of processes running.

    See the ssh man page for complete documentation.
