    I am trying to connect to my VPS ( Virtual Private Server ) from my Mac but which I was able to connect with the Putty session in Windows whenever I try to use the ssh root@VPS12 command it doesn’t work at all.

    What might be the issue? Can you please give me the instructions to follow to connect VPS from my Mac terminal? Thank you.

    -------------------------------------------------

    Steps to follow:


    :: Open a terminal window in the usual way.

    :: Run the command : ssh -l user ip.address

    :: If you get a response like
    ip.address/
    /username/

    Then you have to give the detail and enter.

    :: This will help for connecting the VPN.

    Hello my dear friend ...


    Kindly follow the below steps carefully

    Open the Home page of your Mac

    I think the problem is with the Connection of VPS


    So to enable it you must first find the solution


    Go to the Mac Terminal

    After going it you must type the following in the Search Keyword


    Type ssh with out quotes

    Then click enter

    After that it will be asking for confirmation

    Click on CONNECT option

    That is it


    It will definitely get connected



    VERY GOOD LUCK

    Hi..................,

    You need to have VPN app in your mac.
    For this simply download the app from the app store.

    Suggestions ---->
    * Go to the search option and type the VPN.
    * This is when you have the VPN app.
    * Now open it and you need to sign in.
    * After that press connect to connect to other device.
    * On recognition you can see to set that as a same IP.
    * You can set it or can also choose the user as a wheel user.

    ---> Make sure that both device are securely connected.
    ---> Also see that both are seeking permission to access the private network.

    Thanks

    Dear Friend...

    Connecting a VPS Virtual Private Server with Mac terminal is not a a very difficult process.
    By following these simple steps, you connect VPS with Mac.
    Here we go:-

    1. The first step in this is to open your Mac terminal
    2. In this, you will get a command bar.
    3. Here you need to type this line or command :- "
    ssh -l user ip.address"
    4. After type this command, you will get to see these two lines or instructions or you can say options:-

    - The user is either going to be the user you set as a wheel user, or, root if you have not.
    - The IP address is going to be the IP address of the server you're connecting to.

    When you get this, select any one from them and follow rest of the command given ahead.
    Now login with your password which you get from there.
    Press enter and connect to the server.

    Hope I help you...
    Thank you...
