Right now I've invited team members using their email id. How do they log in to the server from putty/ssh. Whats the equivalent for ssh <user>@<up>?

Hi @spillai

Depending what type of access you want for your team members, you would then create users on the server or give them the root user.

If you want to use SSH keys, then you can look at this tutorial:

SSH, or secure shell, is the most common way of administering remote Linux servers. Although the daemon allows password-based authentication, exposing a password-protected account to the network can open up your server to brute-force attacks. In this guide, we demonstrate how to configure your server with SSH keys, which is the recommended authentication method. These are much more difficult for attackers to work around, giving you a more secure login mechanism.
