Hi all instructions on how to connect to hostgator's ssh are given here http://forums.hostgator.com/showthread.php?t=13038 as someone who has never used ssh before i dont find those instructions explicit enough. It just says i need to "connect" to the server not how or through what? I'm a mac user so i gather that i need to use terminal but thats as far i know. they emailed me saying: " Hi, jailshell is now enabled on 'mysite' / 'myusernam'e. Please be aware that you will have to connect to port 2222, as port 22 is disabled for security reasons. " they also said no-one there was familiar with connecting to the server via a mac! so through terminal what would i need to type to make the connection?

This isn't really a Rails question, but I'll answer it anyhow. :) In terminal type: ssh email@example.com:2222 It may be (space)2222 or -p 2222 rather than :2222; I can't remember (I'm on my work machine that's windows). It should ask for your password; input that and you should be good to go. --Jeremy On 1/22/07, libsfan01 <firstname.lastname@example.org> wrote: > > > -- My free Ruby e-book: http://www.humblelittlerubybook.com/book/ My blogs: http://www.mrneighborly.com/ http://www.rubyinpractice.com/
