3 minutes read

To ssh into a Vagrant machine, first navigate to the directory where your Vagrantfile is located. Next, run the command "vagrant ssh" in your terminal. This will establish an SSH connection to the Vagrant machine and you will be logged in as the vagrant user. You can now interact with the Vagrant machine's command line interface just like you would with a regular server.

What is the difference between SSH and Vagrant SSH?

SSH (Secure Shell) is a network protocol that allows for secure remote access to a computer system. It is commonly used for remote administration, file transfer, and tunneling. Vagrant SSH, on the other hand, is a feature of Vagrant, a tool for building and managing virtual machine environments. Vagrant SSH allows users to quickly connect to the virtual machines they have created using Vagrant, without needing to know the IP address or credentials for the virtual machine. The key difference is that SSH is a general-purpose network protocol, while Vagrant SSH is a specific feature of the Vagrant tool for managing virtual machine environments.

What is the SSH configuration file for Vagrant?

The SSH configuration file for Vagrant is typically located at .vagrant.d/boxes/<box_name>/include/_Vagrantfile within the Vagrant home directory. This file contains settings for managing SSH connections to Vagrant virtual machines, including parameters such as the SSH port, private key path, and other configurations.
