putty equivalent in Linux ?


When in Windows, I use putty to log onto a remote Linux machine.
Now that I can dual boot my personal machine into Linux as well, how can I log into that remote linux machine from my personal linux machine.
In putty, the options selected are 'port 22, SSH'.

Since you're already familiar with Putty, you could install the Linux version of Putty:

Fedora Core 8 version: http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3/stat....i386.rpm.html

Thanks for the info. I haven't used Fedora in a couple years.

The problem with ssh is that it asks for root password. In putty I get to enter a username.

First, don't run as root, and then it won't assume you're trying to log in to the remote server as root.

Second, us the -l (that's a lowercase L) flag to specify user name:
Code:
ssh -l username host
This information is in the man page for ssh:
Code:
man ssh

Or
ssh username@host

but not working as root on a regular basis is a good start.



Cheers,
Tink
