not very much information but to login remotely most use an ssh client such as putty ?

either that or if you just want to view a webpage or something you would use internet explorer.

for email there is outlook; remote desktop: rdp or windows terminal client... i dont use windows so you need to specify what login you are talking about.

it sounds like you want to run ubuntu on a pc that is already running windows, if this is the case then i would suggest you set up a virtual meachine. running a VM will allow you to run both ubuntu and windows 7 at the same time on the same machine, but you will need a program like vm ware to run it I use vm ware but their are others out their.


EDIT: a few virtual machines you can use are Xen, KVM, OpenVZ, VirtualBox, VMware, Linux-VServer you should also check out the linux-virtualization form page if this is what you are trying to do

My network is peer to peer windows 7. My pc name is pent the other pc name is superpc it in the other room. Superpc is what I run Vmware on and have I think Ubuntu one loaded on.Use remote desktop to connect to it right now but want to just connect to the Ubuntu pc instead so if someone wants to use that pc dont hav to log out .

looking into ssh,putty and xing client having trouble finding out how to load ssh on Ubuntu or finding out if its there or need to download .

Also from reading seems like there diffrent ssh programs ssh , sshd and openssh .

Things I read say go to terminal then sudo apt-get install ssh .But when I do says sudo dont have the right permissions. So feel like Im reading in circles .

Thx for the reply heres more info

In order to install ssh, you need root privileges. Whether you sudo it, or su to root is up to you. Once the ssh daemon is installed and running, all you need to do is download a client like putty on your windows box and connect to your ubuntu box that way.

These links may help you ascertain root privileges:

http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/...n8/sudo.8.html
http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/...man1/su.1.html

One thing to make sure is that you disable remote root login after you set this up. Here's a link on how to do that:

sshd is the ssh server daemon; ssh is the client (also there are programs like putty.exe for windows).

i dont know how to check for running processes in ubuntu (in fedora it would be sudo service sshd status).

you can probably check to see if it is running by doing ssh localhost on the ubuntu machine.

if that worx, your next test would be to run ssh ip-address-of-ubuntu-machine from the windows machine.

also, sudo (super user do)allows the limited user to run a command (such as installing stuff on the system) as the root user. if you are not allowed to do that you mite be able to login as root by issueing the su command.

again, i dont use ubuntu but id be surprised if a linux server doesnt have ssh installed by default.

In recent releases of Windows there is no ssh client by default. You have to download putty or an equivalent.

Jspeedcenter never said it was a server, Jspeedcenter said it was an Ubuntu PC. The daemon might not be installed.

fedora-live-usb has sshd available so i just assumed it was standard.
