In this article, we will show you how to connect to any container directly via browser by means of the Web SSH client. You do not need to generate dedicated SSH key pair or apply any other additional configurations.
Click on Web SSH next to the required layer or a particular node to open the tab with terminal emulator as shown below:
By using the options in the tools panel above you can:
switch between nodes of the horizontally-scaled layer, choosing a particular one within the Node ID drop-down list
open one more tab with connection to the current container by clicking on the Duplicate Session option (this allows to perform several simultaneous operations on a single node, e.g. to tail logs in one terminal window and to manage an application itself in another one)
In addition, the client of the web SSH is provided with the embedded shortcuts for convenient management like (the list can be also viewed by hovering over the keyboard icon in the top-right corner of the tab):
Copy (Ctrl + Shift + C)
Paste (Ctrl + V)
Settings (Ctrl + Shift + Alt) - allows to configure emulator, e.g to switch the input method, manually change the clipboard text, etc
Like this, you can start managing your container via SSH.
