Bonus Lesson: Using SSH on Windows to Log in to Vagrant


Due to path issues, vagrant ssh doesn't work on Windows. Although you can update some files to fix this, running PuTTY is slightly more accessible (and has a GUI configuration screen to fill in). In this lesson we cover how to install and use PuTTY to log into your virtual machine. Note: You can use PuTTY from any Windows machine into any Linux server.

Lesson Objectives

By the end of this lesson you will be able to SSH into a remote machine using PuTTY.
