Download and install PuTTY to your computer.

Download: http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/download.html


Once installed, open PuTTY.

Open PuTTY and enter your server's IP address then hit [Open].


You'll be asked to enter your SSH username and password. (sent to you in our Minecraft Server Host: Account information email)

Note: when you're on the password step, you won't see your password being typed. This is a security feature in PuTTY. Don't worry, your keys are being inputed into the field.

If you're having trouble, try copying your password to your clipboard (CTRL+C) then click on PuTTY's window and hit [Shift]+[Insert] on your keyboard. Then hit [enter] to log in.


From here you can now enter commands.  To close PuTTY. type exit into the command line.
