I dont think so cloud computing providers that they will allow you to use their servers individually. As i understood about cloud computing you just place your applications(mostly web based applications)in cloud environment. if we say there are about 1000 servers on cloud environment even we don't know which server handle our application.

Don't know if it still exists, Google still lists it, but I'm getting a time out so maybe they're gone but about two years ago there was a site called Linuxzoo where you could practice your linux command in a console of a virtual machine as root. You only had to register.

Hope they're still functioning.

Kind regards,

Eric

Hi, How come VMware was unable to run Linux as a Virtual machine? this sounds strange, what version of VMWare was it and what actually was the issue.

Also if your just trying out Linux, you could try a live distribution like say Knoppix if you have control over BIOS to set it to allow CD boot over HDD boot or a boot menu...

Hi,

No problem, that's why where here. Found one more but don't know if it offers exactly what you need and/or up to what level you have access. Worth checking out though.

SDF Public Access UNIX.

Kind regards,

Eric

I believe some hosting companies have cli access options. In fact, you can even supply your own machine if you want.

The simplest solution is for you to run a live CD in CLI mode. You don't have to install anything and there's no need to locate a cooperating site.

Virtually any modern distribution's install disk will allow you to enter a command line mode. But be careful -- most of them only permit root shells. This could be dangerous. Make sure you are logged on as an ordinary user.

http://cygwin.org/ is a good source if you have a wyndoze box and want to run a full blown system.

Or you can set up a VPS for really cheap.

Have a look at http://eyeos.org/ - a distro designed for the cloud, apparently.
