First a warning:
Using SSH is at your own risk. If your actions result in your slot being inaccessible we can reset it for you, but we will not provide any other support. You will lose all your data once we do this. Using SSH is not recommended if you do not know what you are doing!
To begin with:
To connect to your slot you will need a terminal application on whatever operating system you are running on. Usually 'PuttY' will do just fine. Download and install the application of your choice, we will use PuTTy as an example in this guide, but you can use the information within any other application you might use.
Once SSH is enabled you can find the port number and full hostname on your boxes overview, by accessing the box you want to connect to.
Open PuTTy and input the details to your server in the appropriate fields:
Once that is done click on 'Open' and wait for the session to start. You will be presented with a pop-up to confirm the SSH-key.
Click 'Yes' to continue to step 2.
Once the connection has been established you will be need to input your username, followed by your password.
Input your username and hit enter. You will then be asked for your password, if you type you will not see any characters appear as a security measure. Be sure to type or copy your password correctly, then hit enter.
If all goes well then you will be presented with the following screen:
You can now use your SSH connection.

You can toggle SSH on your slot by accessing the slot you want to enable it on, then scroll down to 'Advanced features' and click on the SSH header.
You can then choose to turn SSH on or off, depending on the current setting.
To transfer files between two seedboxes you can use the 'SCP' command from an SSH connection. Our boxes will let you use this command to transfer data from another provider as well.
Transfer files from one Seedit4.me slot to another Seedit4.me slot
To begin you need to first enable SSH on the slot you want to copy file from. Once that is done you can connect to that slot via SSH. After that you need to navigate into the directory you want to copy the data from and then use the following command (assuming you want to copy the files to the rtorrent download directory):
scp -r -PORT . [email protected]SERVER.seedit4.me:torrents/rtorrent
Replace port 'PORT' with the SSH port number and 'SERVER' with the server identifier you want to copy files to. So for example:
scp -r -P2367 . [email protected]gsb3.seedit4.me:torrents/rtorrent
The files will then be transferred from the directory you are in, to the directory /torrents/rtorrent on your slot on gsb3.
Transfer files from another provider slot to a Seedit4.me slot
The same basics apply here, but you need to figure out how to access your other seedbox's SSH connection. Once you've done that, you can simply use the same SCP command as above.
