Microsoft Azure – Connecting Linux VM using SSH
In this article, we will look into how you could connect to a Linux VM with SSH in Microsoft Azure. If you have Linux VMs that are running inside of Microsoft Azure, let us look into how you could quickly establish an SSH connection.
To do so follow the below steps:
Step 1: We would select the Ubuntu Linux VM that we have running.
Step 2: Then we are going to click on the “Connect” button.
Here you’ll see it gives us the command that we need to use to establish an SSH connection.
Step 3: Now we will open up our command prompt and paste the command. What it should do now is ask us if we are sure we want to connect, and would say, “Yes”.
Step 4: Now it will ask us for the passwords. So, that password is the password that we would have put in whenever we created the VM.
Step 5: Then we hit “Enter”, and now we should be connected to our VM.
That’s all it takes to establish an SSH connection to an existing VM that’s running inside of Microsoft Azure.
