How would you like to start your Ubuntu 14.04 LTS shell?
What is this thing?
This is a Ubuntu Server hosted free of charge in a hope to help developers learn more about Linux and its commands.
How is it possible to connect to that server?
We use SSH (Secure Shell) to connect you remotely to the server. This way you will be able to process commands on the server on your PC remotely through the internet, by clicking on Login to shell button above, you will be redirected to the web shell where you can start processing commands on the server.
Is there another way to connect to this server instead of visiting the web shell (u1.linuxshell.picrofo.com)?
Yes, you may use any other SSH client to connect to the server. We recommend Bitvise SSH Client but you may as well use your favorite client.
