Any real use to SSH?

Recommended Posts

I found out I could SSH into my school's servers and access my own little directory. Is there any actual use to this, or is this just the nerd fun factor?

It all depends on what is installed on the server. Most schools don't let long running processes live though. Some schools have them setup to host websites. Other than that, you can create an SSH tunnel to use the server as a proxy. Then there is the obvious that you can store files on it.
