Ubuntu already has SSH installed.

In a nutshell, to connect, type in:

ssh username@hostname
or

ssh username@10.1.254.254
to connect via IP address.

I'll just have a quick nose round to see if there is any official documentation on the subject (not that there is alot to document :)).

Nope, can't see anything else, only for ssh-server (which is not what you want).

I've already mentioned how to connect to a server via command-line:

ssh username@hostname

You can also use ssh to run commands:

ssh username@hostname touch ~/hello_world

You aren't limited to command-line though, to run GUI applications via SSH, use the -X argument:

ssh -X username@hostname xeyes
In each instance, you will be asked to type in your server account's password.

Can you ping the server?

Do they use a particular port for ssh connections other than the default?

If so, there is the -p argument too to specify the port use.

ssh -p 22 username@hostname

I am using an internet connection which is proxy enabled
Can it possibly cause a problem?(the server is located outside my lan)
Plus i want an interface to run the server(like a window or something if its possible) ... and download things and stuff... is it possible??

The port is default(22)
but then again the output of the post which came after some time was"ssh: connect to host drum.cs.usm.edu port 22: Connection timed out"

You mean, like a filesystem?

Sure, look up sshfs

sudo apt-get install sshfs

Ensure you are added to the fuse group:

sudo usermod -aG fuse jstdio
Note: you need to logout / login for the group permission to take affect.

Then to connect:

sshfs -o idmap=user username@hostname: ~/mountpoint
The bits highlighted are all that require changing to suit your needs.

Then browse to the mountpoint location on your local filesystem, and all files should be there.

ping drum.cs.usm.edu
If not, the chances am that the server hardware/software firewall is not setup correctly for access from the outside world.

In this instance, you should contact the administrator for further advice/instructions, as you are doing nothing wrong in terms of "client-side" actions.
