to something like this

enter image description here

Since I don't really know anything about servers or whatsoever I need some help to convert this few inputs to the corresponding one that I need to type in the second "connect to server" configuration:

  • Server: abcd:1234 (I gues 1234 is the port)
  • Type: ssh
  • Folder: /home/myfolder
  • Username utente: myname
  • Password: mypassword

(Name and numbers are just random for the sake of understanding)

What do I have to type in the "server address" box?
