How to use Upswift Remote Access tool (port forwarding) to accessing Linux device SSH remotely from anywhere.
Time to read:
Step 1 - Select the desired Linux edge device
Using the Choose Device menu, select the desired device you wish to connect to.
Step 2 - Select SSH port for your device. By default, SSH connections are routed through port 22. (If you are using OpenSSH with a port other than 22, you may need to enter that port here.)
Step 3 - Click OPEN SESSION and confirm your choice.
Step 4 - Wait till your custom URL is provisioned and click Copy to clipboard or note down the hostname and the port.
Step 5 - Open a terminal window (command prompt or powershell if you’re using Microsoft Windows), and type in the following command, and press Enter.
ssh <username>@<hostname> -p <port>
Where the parameters are:
Step 6 - When prompted, type ‘yes’ and press Enter to confirm the SSH key.
Step 7 - The SSH connection will then request for the password for the specified <username>. Type the password and press Enter. (please note that when you’re typing the password, it will not be visible. But it’s being entered underneath.)
If your credentials are correct, then you’ll be successfully connected to your device through a secure SSH connection.
