Level goal

Connect to bandit.labs.overthewire.org, on port 2220 with username and password: bandit0.
Then get the password stored in the file called readme.

RTFM (Read The F*cking Manual)

Bandit wargame has for goal to get you familiar with Linux basic commands. Therefore, to be autonomous and flourish with Linux commands you have to learn using the manual describing how these works.

After a quick look at the man page:

man ssh

We come up with this command layout:

ssh [username]@[host] -p [port]

Replacing with the data provided in the challenge:

ssh bandit0@bandit.labs.overthewire.org -p 2220

We then just have to read the password using the cat command.

bandit0@bandit:~$ cat readme

Here it is for the first step into Linux commands usage! See you soon for bandit1!
