    I've used Putty on my windows machine to connect with my server using SSH. When I try to do it in terminal it doesn't seem to be the same. I click on file > connect to server. Then I input my username 'root' and the server IP. I click connect and I'm not prompted for a password like Putty does.

    In terminal simply type ssh user@server and press enter, it will then prompt you for a password, remember you are using a REAL Unix machine now not windows ;).

    EDIT: Though the "Connect" thing seems to work for me too.

    How do you do commands to find a sites IP?

    ON windows you could do stuff like ip yahoo.com or stuff like /ipconfig etc.

    Any commands like this for terminal?
