Is there any remote server to connected to learn Bash
 
Hello,

My desktop is Windows which is installed by my firm, but now I am learning Bash, so I was wondering if there was any server to which I could connect to learn the Bash and even scripting. I knew there was a Chinese site providing the remote access via SSH, but the IT guys blocked the SSH port, so I am looking for the web based.

I have a question why you prefer to use some remote servers(free servers) are you facing lack of hardware resources?
There are so many open sources linux distros(say like opensuse, opensolaris, fedora etc), why cant you use one for your learning purpose with some virtualization software(vmware, xen etc)

Well ... why not ask the IT guys to enable ssh for you?
Please not that you do not need to use a remote server to learn BASH.
Why not install a bash shell in windows or use a live linux distro for learning?

Is it possible that you employer does not want you to use your computer for this purpose?

For sure, if you are the employer, you are always wishing your employees work very hard

Or, at least, you do not want your employees making use of your equipment, your network, for purposes you disagree with. Just like you do not use the company phones for personal calls.

But it is the other question which is of more interest - why do you need an outside server just to learn bash?

You are right, but using the remote server is my only idea, because I saw a Chinese website providing a remote connection through which you could practise the Bash, so I thought there was only one way to have Bash environment on Windows. Actually, one guy suggested this afternoon, I use Cygwin, and I tried. But I don't quite happy with it although it to some extents solve the problem, I prefer the real Bash environment.

There are several free linux shells

However, most shells are restricted.
I would suggest to use a live cd, or install linux in a virtual environment.
