You can use any SSH client available such as PuTTY or Terminal.

We recommend simply using PowerShell or Terminal/CMD (Search in Start Menu).

In both cases, you will see the result like this:

ECDSA key fingerprint is SHA256:Eze2ImXw1MWfgAMbcWxfc2EQwAkgTHOEPsNwSnEAHAQ.
Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)? 

This is an expected result; just type yes.

Then you will be asked to insert the password:'s password:


  • For security purposes, the password won’t be displayed, even as •••••, but data is still inserted. Don’t worry about not seeing symbols; insert the password and press Enter

  • Password can be copied and pasted with the right-click of a computer mouse. In Windows, it inserts the password immediately; in Linux – opens a menu with actions

As soon as you insert the password and press Enter, you will see this text from the next line:
