Have you tried surfing/searching for Samba - that seems to be one of the main sharing systems - don't use it myself, but if you do a search here at LQ, i'm sure you should be able to work out if it's what you're looking for.

Failing that, google for samba, it should at least come up with the home page for the project.



edit - just done a quick search here, and I found this link in a post by PEACEDOG. I'd say that samba is probably the facility that you're looking for. - /edit

PC Anywhere is remote access
in red hat 9 package there is plenty of clients to connect to windows terminal services, but they are not installed by default, check under your components and install the nescessary. In redhat besides the windows terminal services clients you can also use VNC.

Yeah, if you want something like PC Anywhere, you want to install TightVNC. Do a google search, and you'll find that website. You should also search these forums to figure out how to tunnel the connection through ssh.
