VSCode to remote server

Install OpenSSH for Windows


You may have to find the powershell.exe app in the file folder in order to run as administrator.

Connect to OpenSSH Server

Once installed, you can connect to OpenSSH Server from a Windows or Windows Server device with the OpenSSH client installed. From a PowerShell prompt, run the following command.

ssh domain\username@servername

Once connected, you get a message similar to the following output.

The authenticity of host 'servername (' can't be established.
ECDSA key fingerprint is SHA256:(<a large string>).
Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)?

Entering yes adds that server to the list of known SSH hosts on your Windows client.

At this point, you’ll be prompted for your password. As a security precaution, your password won’t be displayed as you type.

Once connected, you’ll see the Windows command shell prompt:

domain\username@SERVERNAME C:\Users\username>
