    SSH, or Secure SHell, is a way of getting a local shell on a remote *nix system over an SSL tunnel. It is not a shell itself, so the commands you use on the other side depend almost entirely on what shell you've got on the remote side (e.g. BASH). In other words, using RDP to access a Windows system doesn't help much if you don't know how to use Windows. Likewise with SSH and *nix. :)

    On the other hand, there are some SSH-specific commands you should learn if you are serious about this. For example, SCP, SFTP...
