(if you know skip this) also assume you know theĀ 
username of the system using which you log in :D


Note: look for the ip address after "inet addr"Ā 
example and username is rahul

Step3: Now download a client (putty/Terminal) to access your system
 ssh host@ipaddress

example : ssh rahul@
Note: rahul will be the username of the Target system
in which the OpenSSh server is running and itsĀ 
corresponding ip address.

Make sure you enter logout in the terminal
 before you close your session
