Editing via Putty
I wish to edit or create a text file using vi (or other) with a putty client.
A simple question I am sure
I have installed fedora core 3. I have got it on my network and it can connect to the internet. I have done the honourable thing and removed the keyboard and monitor and can access the box from a putty client via ssh.
I am not a great user of these tools so don't laugh too hard: I can navigate up and down the directories and execute various commands: ifconfig, ping, shutdown etc....
I do however want to do more than this and this is where I am stuck. I wish to edit or create a text file but when running ' vi textfile ' I get an error : -bash: vi: command not found - I have tried various options on this but cannot edit a file using vi, vim, kedit, gedit, and so on with a putty client.
I am doing something simple and wrong but as a newbie have no idea.
