Can i see my linux system from another System on my network
 
Hello friends
I am a newbie at using Linux . I am ablet o see the windows machines on my network from linux. But can i access my system(booted on linux) from some remote location ? . And how else can i see the other linux systems in my network ? .is ther a specific packages/software that does that ?.
Help is also required in setting up proxy settings for Konqueror web browser in RedHat 9 ( i am using this ). Here we connect thro a proxy server whose ip is 172.16.68.3 ( a local IP ) with port 8080. When i connect to the internet from Windows machine using the same settings in the internet explorer 6.0 then a window pop's up infront of the explorer with which i authenticate the access to my internet. But nothing such happens in Linux i get the following error
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
HTTP 407 Proxy Authentication Required - The ISA Server requires authorization to fulfill the request. Access to the Web Proxy service is denied. (12209)
Internet Security and Acceleration Server
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Help is required friends. i am really screwed up and i dunno what 2 do .
Here it is not even asking for authentication too.. and it says access denied.
Some one plz help me

Most common method is ssh. The machine you want to connect to must run sshd and the machine you connect with will run ssh, or if it's a windows computer you need a windows ssh program like putty.

Check your firewall also. To use ssh you will need to open port 22.

As for the proxy in Konqueror: There should be a couple check boxes under Authorization:
()Prompt as needed
()Automatic Login
Try selecting the other one.

Hi /bin/bash
Thanq for answering my question.
But another question still prevails in my mind .. It is how can i just identify the number of linux computers in my network ?.

nmap -sS -O 192.168.0.0/24

This will do a scan of the entire 192.168.0.0 network and try to detect the OS of any computers it finds.

<edit> It even guessed my router. :cool:

Interesting ports on jimmyneutron (192.168.0.1):
(The 1642 ports scanned but not shown below are in state: closed)
Port State Service
80/tcp open http
515/tcp open printer
Device type: WAP|broadband router
Running (JUST GUESSING) : Linksys embedded (98%), Cnet embedded (95%), D-Link embedded (92%), US Robotics embedded (92%), SMC embedded (88%)
Aggressive OS guesses: Linksys BEFW11S4 WAP or BEFSR41 router (98%), Cnet CNIG904B Internet Broadband Gateway firmware version 1.11 (95%), SMC Barricade or D-Link DL-707 Wireless Broadband Router (92%), US Robotics USR8022 broadband wireless router (WAP) (92%), D-Link 704P Broadband Gateway or DI-713P WAP (90%), SMC Barricade Wireless Broadband Router (firmware R1.93e) (88%), DLink DI-604 ethernet router using firmware 1.62 build 2 (88%), DLink DI-604 ethernet router (88%), US Robotics broadband router (model (88%)
No exact OS matches for host (test conditions non-ideal).
But it also crashed it! :mad:
