cygwin has ssh. You could use that to login to a linux computer running sshd. http://www.cygwin.com/

Isnt it possible to have a remote desktop access to linux from the windows server through rdp(remote desktop protocol) like i do in case of windows or from linux to windows even.
I dont prefer using vnc for this.
Please tell me a method to do this using rdp.

No ash,

I don't think that there is currently any such rdp server for linux.
Moreover don't expect it too, as I have told earlier opneSSH is the norm in linux which you connect into using cygwin's ssh client. Although you have to get into CLI / TBI. If you want to get into graphics try cipe or vnc or xdmcp(Linux to linux)

hey imagineer,
Im very new to linux. So,pls dont use so very technical terms.
Thanks anyways.
I am already accessing a windows system through rdesktop by typing rdesktop I.P address of the windows system
But i cannot do the same from windows to access linux remotely.
Anyways,i'll try using vnc and will definitely let u know.
Meanwhile,if u get to know of any way to access linux from windows,please let me know.

Hey ash,

I was not techy at all!

As windows totally depends(Mainly if so) on graphics they have provided a utility to administer and the servers using rdp or remote desktop.

In unix / linux there was telnet, rlogin/rsh.

And now we use openSSH
openssh cant be used graphics but you can use openSSH TO transfer X to linux system
TBI:- text based interface
GUI as u know

ashley to access your desktop on your linux machine you have to run an Xserver on your linux machine, then install and Xmanager(client) on your windows machine.. and connect to your linux box through this.

I've never tried the vnc approach, but i guess that you'll have to install a VNC server on your Linux machine first in order to access it with a VNC viewer from your windows machine.

Hi

If you could give the steps (both Linux and windows machine) in sequence then it would be highly useful.

Thanks in advance.

If you down load the stuff from cygwin, you can use this to access the linux box from windows:

C:\programs\cygwin\usr\X11R6\bin\XWin.exe -query linuxcomputer -clipboard

I had to copy some dll programs from cygwin\lib to X11R6\bin to make it work, tho.

I only do this locally, tho. Does anyone know if this can be down over an internet connection? Or should I go with VNC?
