Im sure ive seen this question or variants of it asked a hundred times but after trawling thru the lists again, i cant quiet seem to find the info i need so here goes...
What i want is to be able to access remote computers (i.e. my university solaris server) using SSH or related tools that will allow me to run X apps over the internet.
How do i go about this im wonderin?
Present state of my system/network:
Win2k -the machine that has the modem
Redhat 7.1 the machine with out the modem!!!
I have them networked, can ping, ftp etc etc...
Also i have windows set up as a proxy server (using AnalogueX's nifty little gadget) so i can browse websites on my linux box using Netscape.
But, (here's the crunch) how do i configure Linux so i can access the net from the shell?
i.e. telnet, SSH, FTP remote sites directly from shell?
Any info would be much appreciated (such as a step by step tutorial :-) or pointers to the relevant how-to's or websites, just anything really.
