I’m making a home server and I wonder if two people can connect through ssh to the same user at the same time.

Because maybe they aren’t two people.

You can try with two terminal windows.

Also telling people asking questions on the internet “we aren’t Google” is silly.

This is wrong, since questions like these have been answered dozens of times and are easily accessible. Also you can easily try it out.

For more complex questions or stuff that’s not to be easily tried out or answered in every second SSH guide out there I’m totally with you.

If you don’t have anything useful to add to the post don’t comment like that.

I already answered the question. Did you?

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991 by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution (or distro for short).

Distributions include the Linux kernel and supporting system software and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project. Many Linux distributions use the word “Linux” in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.
