How To Access Garanntor Virtual Private Server (VPS) Via SSH

As at the time of publishing this post, I am using garanntor nigeria vps hosting plan to host NetDivo Forum; a discourse forum.

Whenever I want to access the garanntor virtual private server, I run SSH commands by making use of PuTTy on my Microsoft Surface laptop or terminal app on my Macbook pro.

The Secure Shell (SSH) protocol is often used for remote terminal connections, allowing you to access a text-mode terminal on a remote computer. It can also be used for SSH tunneling, SCP file transfers, and other things.

PuTTY is an SSH and telnet client, developed originally by Simon Tatham for the Windows platform. PuTTY is open source software that is available with source code and is developed and supported by a group of volunteers. You can download putty at

Terminal is a built-in Mac utility that gives you direct access to the command line in Mac OS. You can use Terminal to make an SSH connection to a remote host without the need to install a third-party ssh windows client like PuTTY.

How To Connect To Garanntor VPS Using PuTTY

Launch PuTTY on your Windows PC.

Type “root@yourServerIP” into the “Host name (or IP address)” box.

Login to your garanntor account to get your VPS IP address.

How To Access Garanntor VPS Using Terminal SSH Command

On your Mac, go to Applications > Utilities, and then open Terminal.

At the command prompt (yourusername$), type ssh and a space then “‘root@yourServerIPAddress”. press Enter.

For example : ssh root@111.222.333.444

This command will connect to the SSH server on port 22, which is the default.

If you see a message asking you if you want to continue connecting, type yes and press Enter.

Enter the root password for the vps. The password does not echo to the screen.

If you entered the correct password, you will be connected to the vps and a shell prompt is returned.

I hope this helps.
