This article explains how to use the built-in OpenSSH client in Windows 10.
Microsoft has finally added the OpenSSH client on Windows 10 machines. Although still a beta feature, it works. You’ll probably still want to use your favorite SSH client instead of the Windows 10 version.
The built-in OpenSSH client in Windows provides a convenient way to connect to SSH servers without installing third-party software. It is a native feature of Windows 10, which means it is more secure and reliable than using third-party software.
Also, it is easy to use and works just like the SSH clients on Linux and other operating systems. However, it should be noted that the built-in Windows 10 OpenSSH client only supports ed25519 keys, so it might not work with all SSH server settings.
Install Windows 10 OpenSSH Client
To get started with enabling the client, click on Start –> to Settings
Then click on Apps –> Apps & features from the Apps & feature page, click Manage optional features
Then click the Add a Feature button to add the new SSH client
Scroll down the list, click OpenSSH Client (Beta) option, and click Install
That should install the Windows 10 OpenSSH client.
How to Use Windows 10 SSH Client
Once the client is installed, you must open Windows Command Prompt or Windows PowerShell. Either program should work for you. The client works just like the ones on Linux and other operating systems.
Type the ssh command followed by the username @ hostname or IP address. You may specify the SSH port if not the standard port. If the server is configured right, access should be granted.
ex. ssh email@example.com
