GCP - Your platform does not support SSH

By xngo on August 28, 2021


When running gcloud compute ssh --project=PROJECT_ID --zone=ZONE VM_NAME, I got the following error message:

ERROR: (gcloud.compute.ssh) Your platform does not support SSH.


That message means SSH client is not installed on your computer. So, just install it.

apt-get install openssh-client
