Retrix Hosting no longer supports the “telnet” protocol due to its insecure nature. Instead, customers must use the SSH protocol to access a shell.
Connect to [username].retrix.net on port 2242 (where username is your username for your account. eg: “mike”, “patrick”, etc…). Upon connecting you will need to supply your username and password.
If you are connecting from the command line/Unix environment, it should look something like this:
ssh -p 2242 [username]@[username].retrix.net
To make that easier, you can create a ~/.ssh/config file with the following contents:
Host username.retrix.net Port 2242 User username
(Be sure to substitute “username” for your Retrix username!)
Then you can simply type:
The username and port specified in your
file will automatically get used.
