ssh is a useful tool with which to connect to remote hosts. …

Open a terminal. As user, "ssh user@remotehost" (for example, "username@example.com"). You will be asked for your password. Once authenticated, your terminal is connected to the remote host. It's as if you were seated at the console of the remote computer.

To end your session and terminate the connection, enter "exit".
