Using Remmina as GUI SSH Client for Linux

Back there in Windows I have Putty which is cool and works with no issues, but here in Linux I enjoy everything in CLI. I found out some user of Linux distro ain’t actually using it as servers, some use it as their primary OS and work on it which makes them not that good with CLI. Found this software in my Ubuntu 14.04 which I can use to connect to my SSH server, normally the simple command for logging into SSH via CLI is:

$ ssh [email protected] 

But with the GUI package, things got easier.

Remmina is a remote desktop client written in GTK+, aiming to be useful for system administrators and travellers, who need to work with lots of remote computers in front of either large monitors or tiny netbooks. Remmina supports multiple network protocols in an integrated and consistent user interface. Currently RDP, VNC, NX, XDMCP and SSH are supported.

I met my Remmina as a default installed package in my Ubuntu 14.04, search your OS for it as shown below:

Just in case you don’t have it, install with:

$ sudo apt-get install remmina

Mainly Remmina is a RDP Package and also supports SSH, since we are talking of SSH here I won’t want to divert. Open your Remmina and Create new Remote Desktop File
remminaChoose Protocol to SSH – Secure Shell, input the Server address and Username, select Authentication method then Connect
Once you are connected, authenticate and enjoy your SSH surf! 🙂
