    Hi,
    I'm new on mac, I noticed that there is a terminal that I could use to connect via ssh to my server. But I don't know how to do it. Which is the command I should use to login in my server?

    Given the depth and breadth of what you can do, I recommend a book on unix.

    you can also type man ssh to learn the ssh. The man pages works for all of the terminal commands.

    as long as you know the hostname or ip address (interchangeable) for your server the syntax is.

    ssh username@hostname

    you will be challenged for your password on the server. As the other poster has put it, if you need to ask you should seek out a good intro to ssh. ie.
