Shell access

If you want shell access, you need to install a SSH client. We recommend PuTTY. You can either download just putty.exe (which is what you need), or the slightly more user friendly installer. Start PuTTY, and type in the Host Name field. Leave the rest as it is, and click Open. You will be asked for username and password.
