Gentlemen!

I'm in business!!! Thank you!!! Obviously there's a lot of computer architecture that I should familiarize myself with. Is there a resource that you can point me to provide a glossary of terms like "client, server, port, ssh, etc.".

Thanks so much for your help.

So, what was wrong with my system? Was port 22 closed? Did the steps that you recommended @michaelk open port 22?

What did you do to make it work? You started sshd, was in running before?

Nope, I just started with the assumption that ssh was not installed and wrote the instructions accordingly. But basically ssh was not running.

You can find a how to on just about everything just by searching for ubuntu and what ever subject desired. You have to be careful since there is a lot of outdated information.

While Unix and linux are similar they are not the same. While reading you might find commands in the book do not work the same on your Ubuntu VM. Are you taking a class, self study etc. Why did you pick that particular book?

Hi All,

This is just self-study. I thought that I should overcome my non-techie-ness. I found this book in the library. I also downloaded the free Linux book that was available through the linuxquestions.org website.

Running the VM with Windows does seem to make Windows quite slow.

Good luck with your studies.

Without knowing the specifications of your computer nor how the VM is configured can not say why its slow.

Judging from my experience, that's most probably a problem of insufficient memory. You can use the Windows Task Manager, Performance tab, to double-check this. Over say 80%% of memory use is a bad sign.

If you run 64-bit Windows, check if you can add memory to your PC. It's very cheap nowadays.
If your Windows is 32 bits, it's unlikely you can do anything about it (i.e. you can add memory, but Windows will only recognize some 3GB).

I can recommend a book named "ssh mastery", not too expensive. But it does assume a minimum of network knowledge and won't explain client, server and port.

Re books:

for the basic stuff you mentioned, I guess wikipedia would be a start.
This http://rute.2038bug.com/index.html.gz is a really good tutorial on the cmd line aka cli and how to use it in Linux.
This www.linuxtopia.org contains more books/manuals than you can read (all free to read online); definitely a good ref to bookmark.

Thanks @chrism01 and @berndbausch for the book recommendations.

Another question - why would I even need to connect my host machine to my virtual machine (VM) with PuTTY if Ubuntu on the VM has a terminal option? The terminal which I opened with Ctrl+Alt+t has the same prompt as PuTTY when connected.

You wouldn't. ssh in a terminal info is fine.

PuTTY might have features that Terminal+ssh don't have, for example a list of your favourite remote hosts. If you only want to access your local VM, use the Linux ssh program.

You may have different view on this if the computer you are administering over SSH is not next to you.

You're learning Unix but using Ubuntu?
