Chapter 12. Running Network Services > Remote Login Services

12.6. Remote Login Services

There may come a time when you need to log into your Mac from another machine or log into another Mac (or Unix system) from your machine. For this, Mac OS X offers remote login services such as the Secure Shell, Telnet, and the remote shell.

12.6.1. The Secure Shell

The Secure Shell (SSH), is a protocol for using key-based encryption to allow secure communication between machines. As its name suggests, it is most commonly used for interactive sessions with shells on remote machines, so that you can use the ssh command as described in "Remote Logins" in Chapter 8.
