2.2.2. Leaving the Console

The console isn’t a very friendly place to work from, we will now switch to accessing the machine remotely via SSH where we can use copy&paste etc.
First we check we can see the newly installed at all:
beekhof@f16 ~ # ping -c 1
PING ( 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from icmp_req=1 ttl=64 time=1.01 ms

--- ping statistics ---
1 packets transmitted, 1 received, 0% packet loss, time 0ms
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 1.012/1.012/1.012/0.000 ms
Next we login via SSH
beekhof@f16 ~ # ssh -l root
root@'s password:
