Now that you are connected to your VPS, the first thing you want to do is change the deafult SSH port.

Type nano /etc/ssh/sshd_config  Hit the down arrow key until you get to Port 22 (should be 4 times)
Hit the right arrow key 5 times (until the first 2 in 22 is highlighted)
Press the delete key twice, then type in another number.  This will change the default port from 22 to something different.    Use 8050 or 8080  8090. The reason for this is bots are automatically sanning and trying to brute force login into your server.  By changing the default port, you just remove any chances from them trying that.
Then press Crtl and O.  This will save the file
Then press Crtl and X  This will exit nano and back to the terminal

Type service sshd restart    This will restart SSH service.  Now be sure to update the port in Bitvise from 22 to the number you set it too, and then click on Save profile.  This will drastically reduce the bots from trying to brute force login your server.

Now your server is ready and you can install Profit Trailer
