Connect via PuTTY to Linux VM on Google Cloud


There are two ways you can make an SSH connection using PuTTY to GCP provisioned Linux Compute Instance:
– Generate Public / Private SSH keys, add public key to the Instance and use Private key in Putty to make a connection
– Modify sshd on the Linux VM to accept login/passwords login requests
In this video I will present both ways, based on the Linux Debian example. I will also briefly discuss how to troubleshoot your connection issues, checking the firewall settings etc.
There might be some difference between Linux Distributions, however the overall process should be very similar.
