Any one know if there's a program for using Remote Administration on a Windows machine in Linux.

What I am really refering to is being able to Administer windows 2000 from Linux without installing anything like VNC on windows. Just connecting to the computer the way you would with another windows machine in computer manager.

To control shares, Users, Change passwords, etc...

This does not need to be a GUI just the ability to do it for any machine on the network as long as you have the password.

May sound sorta wierd, but try installing vmware on your linux box and throw an install on win2k on it. Maybe it'll work. Windows on linux managing remote windows machines, hhhmmm I love linux.

I dont know how much you can do through telnet, but you could turn on the telnet server built into win2k.

I personally use VNC and like it. I have it start as a service, and have to give the ctrl+alt+del to login. I use a browser to connect.

I use vnc too.

The thing is it has a fairly unsecure password challenge and once logged in the data is not encrypted.


I always login using ssh, with local port forwarding setup. Then I start vncserver on the server side.(it's not really safe to leave it running). Then I connect to the forwarded port on localhost:xxxx

Telnet is worse, your password is clear text that anyone can very easily see.
