For Windows users, use PuTTY.
For Mac users, locate to .ssh folder which is under the root folder and create a file named “config” – you can simply use TextEdit.
Note: since .ssh folder is hidden, you can type the below command to view hidden files.
defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles TRUE killall Finder
In your “config’ file, write and save the server information. Below is just an example. Make sure you follow the below format.
Host abc HostName abc-def-123.org.com Port 22 User abc
If you are done modifying your config file, hide your folders by running the below command.
defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles FALSE killall Finder
To connect to the server, relaunch your Terminal and write the below command.
I wanted to create shortcuts to easily connect to servers but if you don’t need to have shortcuts, you can simply open your terminal and click “New Remote Connection” which is located under the “Shell” menu. Click the plus sign and add your server information.
