    Hello !

    I dont' understand what I should do to connect via SSH to my server. In the past, I simply had to give my login and password. Now, I have :

    Since, it's the first time I'm using it, what should I do ?
    Should I generate a new key before doing anaything ? Which type and size should I choose ? Should I give it a name ? (can you give me an example ?)

    What is the difference between SSHTerme and Java Telnat Applet ?

    Thank you ofr your help !

    Regards,

    You dont need to go around and break your head on SSH keys if you are not aware of it.

    You can choose either of them and login with your normal username/password.

    Hello !

    Does it mean I simply have to click on one of the two links :

    Connect using SSHTerm (requires java)

    Connect using Java Telnet Applet (requires java)

    ?

    But then I click on File/New Connection, and what should I write then ?

    It always answers "Could not establish a connection".

    Thank you ! :)

    Well the problem was very simple : I don't know why, each time the application loads, it sets the port to 2222. In fact the port should be 22. :)
