Connect to VPS Server via SSH Using Putty On Windows

Hope you have a server you wish to manage via SSH port, so here it is the way I use Putty which you can follow..
Step 1.
Download Putty.exe Click here to download Putty
Step 2.
Double-click it to launch the main interface. It should look like this..

Step 3.
Now enter the Host name of your server obtained from your provider. It can also be the IP address.
Step 4.
Leave the port field as it is (port 22 – default) unless your provider changed it to another port but they should tell you.
Step 5.
Make sure the “SSH” option is checked.

Step 6.
That’s it then click the “Open” button
Step 7.
Now you’ll see another window open. If it is your first time using Putty to SSH-ing your server, you may notice an alert like this one. Simply hit Yes button.

Step 8.
Putty will bring you to login to your server via SSH connection. In this case you may enter your root password.

Congratulation you are now getting access to your server via SSH. You can try some basic command. In this case I’ll try to see RAM usage in my playground server:
Command to use:
free -m
It will return like this..

Quick tip:
In Putty, you can use mouse right-click to paste any text.
