SSH/SCP/SFTP I love them all.

I pretty much use ssh for everything. I use it mostly to connect to my home/web/this server and use it as an interface. The best program to use alongside ssh is screen.

To install both ssh and screen, you may do this:

  1. sudo apt-get install ssh
  2. sudo apt-get install screen

If I were good with words, I would write a poem for ssh. But alas, I am not. So, you get the first page from the Wikipedia Entry.

Secure Shell or SSH is a network protocol that allows data to be exchanged over a secure channel between two computers. Encryption provides confidentiality and integrity of data. SSH uses public-key cryptography to authenticate the remote computer and allow the remote computer to authenticate the user, if necessary.

Here are a few of the best SSH/SCP commands EVER:

  1. ssh
  1. scp /home/local/downloadhere/
