Open the terminal window on your Mac system. Go to the Applications menu, select the Utilities folder and then click on the Terminal icon to start the Terminal Window on a respective Mac system.
Now, copy and paste the following commands into the Terminal Window.
/ usr / bin / ruby -e “$ (curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)”
Once you execute the command mentioned above, the Brew tool will be installed on the system. You will see the message Correct on the Terminal Window screen.

When you see the connection message in the Terminal window, continue and start a new Terminal Window on a system. The command lines will start with the -bash code. If you see the same lines in the new Terminal window, it is working fine.
After this, enter the following SSH commands in the Terminal Window.
“Root ssh @ localhost -p 2022”
You will be asked to enter the password, type “alpine”. Enter this password and press the Enter button. After that, add one more command to the Terminal window shown below.
