This section explains how you can log in from Tectia Client to Tectia Server using password authentication with the default settings. The default settings on Tectia Client and Server allow login with passwords, public keys, GSSAPI, and keyboard-interactive. By default, passwords are used for user authentication, and public keys for server authentication.

You are expected to have a user account on the remote server where you will connect, and the server must have a Secure Shell server running. In the following example, you can also just connect within the local machine, to make sure that you know the server's address and that it has Tectia Server running.
