Linux remotely through Windows


maybe I'm way over my head on this one. but I have basic linux installation(NO GUI), I have the box connected to a network and i know i have the proper NIC driver installed(i know this because i did an FTP install).

whats the first step? do i have to install something server side or just get some kind of terminal emulator for windows?

any answer at all would be a step in some direction for me and I'd appreciate it

from windows you can just telnet to your new linux server,
if you have a few spare (2-3) gigs of room on your hard drive then I would install
Xwindows along with either gnome or kde window managers....

You probably don't have Telnet enabled on your box. Most of the newer releases of Linux use ssh (an encripted telnet) to remotely connect to your box. For that you'll need something more. Personally when I'm on a MS box and need to talk to my linux system I use puty. (http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~s.../download.html)

There are other good SSH clients. One is available for free download at ssh.com; however it must be used for personal use (blah, blah, blah).

Once you have your client set up, just ssh on over and you'll have a secure shell to do whith whatever you like.

Lastly, you don't mention what you want to do remotely with this system. If you are looking for a good management utility for you Linux box... one that you can get to from any system in the world... I would strongly suggest Webmin. When properly implemented webmin is a very powerful tool that is extremely user friendly. From webmin you can do pretty much anything you ever wanted to do on a Linux box. It's a great tool.

Cheers,

is tehre any way to check on my linux box whether or not telnet is enabled or even installed or whatever? im basically just toolin around with it for now. I only have one monitor and no kvm switch so all of these web tutorials and walk through would go alot quicker if i didnt have to move monitor and mouse cables everytime i wanted to try something

I installed Cygwin on my windows box and it's great. you get a linux shell and directory tree in windows with many of the linux tools. go to www.cygwin.com if you're interested.

If you telnet to that machine and you are not able to get a login, then the odds are very good that you do not have the telnet service enabled.

I frequently use VNC to go to my Linux box from my Winblows. VNC is usually sitting somewhere on the install disks, but it doesn't get installed by default. You can add it after with no problem. Of course if I bought a KVM switch that would do nicely, but I'm cheap, and for personal use VNC is free!

Peace,
JimBass

Guyz... dont use telnet. Use ssh because telent has a lot of security flaws. Putty is a very good ssh client,
good luck

Again, try to use it. If it works then you know it's there. If you find it's not working then I'll help you get it running.

Denwar, the port for telnet is 23. SSH uses 22.

Cheers,

NP. If you like ssh then you'll love sftp. It's an encripted FTP session. Check it out.

also try ssh secure shell for windows. It works great, it's free and has a great secure ftp program in it.
