Briefly, SSH means secure shell, it allows a remote connection to a server securely. you can learn more about SSH using the links below.
To connect to a server via SSH, you will need an SSH application like Putty, Bitvise, etc. Personally, I use more of putty and bitvise.
You can download putty via this link if you don’t have it yet.
https://www.putty.org/ (About 3.5mb)
After the download, launch the application, you will have the image below. Input your IP in the IP address space, click on open and you are IN.
