Atera offers SSH (Secure Shell) support for Linux devices, allowing you to securely access and manage remote devices directly from within the Atera platform.
Interactive terminal: Execute commands in real-time on your Linux servers and workstations.
SSH Tunneling/forwarding: This allows users to securely connect to other devices on the same local network without requiring the Atera agent on those devices.
Enhanced security: The SSH connection is established over a secure local networking port, ensuring data integrity and confidentiality.
How to access SSH for Linux

Note: SSH access is available wherever the "Manage" menu is accessible for your Linux device.
