I have shell access to the host. I have never used this before, but I get the idea because I use Telnet at work, which I know is around the same concept. Well, I found out that Telnet and Dreamhost don't get along, so I need to figure out how to access SSH.
HOW THE HELL DO I GET ACCESS TO SSH????? It seriously cannot be this hard!!!!
I got something called 'Putty' that is supposed to help me garner access to SSH, but I cannot figure out how to use it. I wish that they worked with Telnet. Things would be so much easier.
