Outdated Documentation - Perform an SSH Connection

Senior II

Not sure where to put it so I'll put it here.  It looks like the "Perform an SSH Connection" document is out of date (unless this is referring to another process).  According to the page, you SSH with:

ssh root@

It looks like it's changed so now you SSH with:

ssh root@

Not sure if it helps but thought I'd throw it out there all the same

Hi @JayDev 

I agree that this wiki page should have clearly mention that IP address is not fixed and usually assigned by your network DHCP. This is part of some topics which are obvious for most people using networked computers, but could confuse beginners.
