    I am setting up Public Key Authentication for shell access. Under section 4 on this link it indicates that I should be able to access root using SSHTerm, but I cannot find it in the menus. How do I add SSHTerm to WHM?

    I am having trouble setting up FileZilla to connect to root, even with SSH still enabled in WHM. Any help would be appreciated.

    SSHTerm is a Java-based SSH client. It can be found by clicking the SSH/Shell access button in the cPanel interface.

    However, if you are root user on the system, you may wish to use a program designed for such things such as PuTTY.

    Note that FileZilla cannot be used to connect to SSH (unless you mean SFTP).

    No links to SSH/Shell Access

    Thanks for the quick reply.

    I do not have a button for SSH/Shell Access in my cPanel interface. Can I install or add it, or is this a support issue?

    Yes, I did mean SFTP for FileZilla.

    Is PuTTY the best choice for root access?

    I do have SSH/Shell Access when I log into my domain cPanel manager. I do not have it for the root WHM interface.

    That is not in the WHM interface, nor do the instructions linked to appear to imply that.

    I can understand why hackers give up wnen key are involved, because if it is this hard for users to setup and use, then it must be impossible for them.

    I will have to come back later and try to set this up when I have a few more hours to burn.

    The original link I sent does not imply that WHM has a link to shell access. But this page that linked to it says to set up a key in WHM tell me to generate a key and use it according to the instructions in the guide for users. That's were the implication was.
