There are times when you are required to access your storage server remotely via the SSH (or a similar) protocol, using CLI instead of Web GUI. For this purpose, you can choose from a wide range of available terminal emulators. Our latest webcast explains how to access and manage Open-E DSS V7 using a popular PuTTY client (and a related command line application called Plink) in Windows.
In the demonstration video, our moderator created a snapshot of a sample Open-E DSS V7 volume and presented how simple it is to manage it remotely from CLI. Full list of topics covered by this week’s webcast is shown below:
Enabling the Remote control access in Open-E DSS V7
