Connecting to a Remote Host

When connecting to a remote host for the first time, do the following:

  1. Click the Connect icon on the toolbar, or select File -> Connect, or hit Enter or Space on the keyboard when the (still disconnected) Client window is active. This opens the Connect to Remote Host dialog.

  2. In the Connect to Remote Host dialog, specify the host name (or IP address), user name, port number and authentication method for the new connection.
  3. Click Connect. When you connect to a remote host computer (using public-key host authentication), the host will provide your local computer with its host public key. The host key is the public key for identifying the remote host computer that you are connecting to. SSH Tectia Client checks if this key is already stored in your own public key file. If not, the public key file common to all users on your computer is checked next (see Section Defining Globally Accessible Host Keys). If the host key is not found, you are asked to verify it. The Host Identification dialog opens.

  4. In the Host Identification dialog, verify the key. You will also be asked whether you want to save the key. Click Yes to save the key.

For more information, see Sections Connection Parameters and Verifying Host Identity.
