    You'll need to log in through ssh using a client tool such as putty.

    If you're in whm set up one of your accounts to have ssh and then log in as you would to cpanel but using yer ssh client.

    Or log in as root - if you haven't disabled it like you should have!!

    Do a search on securing your box in this forum - disable root login - then su to root to gain root priveledges - this gives an added layer of protection to your system i.e. another password layer.

    ssh is not as secure as many believe. google on that point to find various papers on ssh security.
