[Getting started] Connect to a host

Make sure you are on the ‘Hosts’ screen. Tap the menu button in the top-left corner, then tap hosts.

Tap the host you wish to connect with once. If this is the first time you connect, you’ll see a security warning. Don’t worry: everything is fine. Hit Connect. You’ll only see this warning the first time Serverauditor connects to a host that it hasn’t seen before.

Requesting Fingerprint

Now a terminal with a prompt should appear, you are connected. Type exit to close the terminal window.

! You can type exit to close the terminal window.


If a dialogue saying Connection failed Connecting to xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx port 22 appears, it is likely you have entered an incorrect IP address. Otherwise, you device might not be hooked up to a network, the host might be turned off, or it may be in a different network than your device.
