This guide is to provide simple steps on how to SSH into your server for both Windows and Mac. Your results may vary throughout this process and therefore outside research may be required.

Windows

  1. Download a SSH Client. We recommend using PuTTY. You can download PuTTY here
  2. Once downloaded, open up PuTTY
  3. In the Host Name/IP Address box, enter in your IP Address/Domain Name of your server

4. Enter in your port. By default this will be; 4747

5. Then press Open at the bottom

6. Then a black box will appear prompting you for your username. Enter in your QuickBox username and press Enter.

7. You will then be prompted for your password. Enter in your QuickBox password and press Enter. – Note; your password will not appear when typing this in. This is expected behaviour and a security precaution.

8. If prompted about the SSH key, then press in Yes

9. Finally, to access the QuickBox portion of your server, type the following command and hit Enter. You will be prompted to re-enter in your QuickBox password.

sudo su -

Mac OS

  1. Click on the magnifying glass at the top of your screen (or + space)

2. Then search for Terminal and click on the search result

3. Your Terminal window will now appear. Now type in;

ssh [email protected]/DOMAIN.COM -p 4747

4. This is your QuickBox username you must enter in, and then your IP address

5. If prompted about the SSH key, then type in Yes

6. Then enter in your QuickBox password. – Note; your password will not appear when typing this in. This is expected behaviour and a security precaution.

7. Then once you have successfully logged in, you can then run the command below to access the QuickBox portion of your server.

sudo su -
