In this tutorial we will explain the easiest way to connect to your Linux VPS or Dedicated server from your Mac.

Prerequisites:

  • PC or laptop with MacOS.
  • Terminal  (comes pre-installed with MacOS)
  • Internet Access
  • Active Linux VPS or Linux Dedicated Server
  • Your server’s IP address, Username and Password (can be found from within the myNetShop portal)

Step 1 – Run Terminal

Click the Spotlight icon. It’s the magnifying glass in the upper-right corner of the screen. See below screenshot for reference.

Type terminal in the search field. Then double click the result to open the terminal.

Step 2 – Connect via SSH

A new window with the terminal app will open.

Enter the command: ssh root@your-server-IP-address

Then provide your password and hit Enter.

On your first login attempt the system will ask if you are sure you want to connect. Type yes and hit Enter.

Congratulations! You are now connected to your Linux server via Terminal on Mac.
