It is possible to access your VPS container using any preferred third-party SSH software via the attached external IP address. Such connection provides the same full root access level as while working over CirrusGrid SSH Gate.
Tip: You can locate your Public IP by expanding the appropriate node in the Jelastic dashboard or within the appropriate Elastic VPS creation email.
Below, we’ve prepared examples of connection to Elastic VPS container over public IP from under different operating systems:
Tip: In confines of the Windows-based VPS containers, the remote desktop protocol (RDP) is used to perform any required server configurations.
Run your preferred SSH tool and connect to your VPS server with the steps similar to the ones provided below.
As an example, we’ll use the OpenSSH software, open your terminal and run the following command:
If connecting for the first time, you may be asked to confirm access by adding your VPS address to the list of known hosts (type “yes” to proceed). Next, authenticate on the server by providing a password (the one sent via email after node creation).
That’s it! Start managing your VPS container and apply any required configurations. You can adapt the current procedure to establish a connection by means of any preferred third-party SSH tool.
In confines of Windows OS, choose a compatible tool to establish SSH connection via Public IP to your VPS container. For example, we’ll use the PuTTY SSH client.
1. Navigate to the Configuration tab and establish Session by specifying your Public IP address into the appropriate Host Name field.
Once the required data is specified, click the Open button.
2. Within the appeared Console window, you need to provide your access credentials, i.e Login and Password from the VPS node after-creation email.
That’s it! Now, as SSH connection via Public IP to remote VPS is established, you can start its management with full root permissions granted.
