Remote Access to a Red Hat 9 Linux Server


How do I remotely access a Red Hat 9 Linux Server? It is overseas.

I have Cute FTP 8 access to the remote server.
I have created my own local Red Hat 9 PC at home.
I have downloaded the source.
I have made the change and successfully tested them on my local RH9 PC.
I have copied the source back to server.

Now I need to be able to run Make to re-compile it on the server remotely and to stop and start the application.

Is there a way to remotely logon to a server and access it in the same way as I do on my local PC? Do I need to do it from my RH9 PC or can I do it from the Windows PC as well.

As far as I know I have the root and developer signons and passwords but I have no clue how to do it (other than via my Cute FTP 8 access).

By the way, I know that RH9 is somewhat dated but they tried previously to port to a newer linux version and started getting file corruptions so went back. That is a different story for a different time.

Any guidance for me to look at would be greatly appreciated.

Not sure I understand what it is you want to achieve remotely. If you just want to login, you could use ssh. If you want to be able to see the desktop, use VNC. If you want to get to the BIOS, you'll need access to get to the remote management port, but that will depend on hardware (ie, ILO for HP, DRAC for Dell)

Thanks

Thanks for your help.

I will give it a try.

I am trying to run Make on the server to compile the changes I copied there. I was also trying to start/stop the application for the changes to take effect.

^ please post error messages and maybe someone will be able to figure out your problem.

this seems kinda' site specific so maybe only the developer that made your code can debug it.

not sure what command you are trying to run or what server you are trying to restart but i know that redhat has a service command used for often-used services. the syntax is like:
/sbin/service sshd restart

^ i dont think Make is a valid command (unless it is something you created site specific).

are you sure you are not trying to run make (case matters).

also, i dont know what you are trying to install but tarball installers usually work by:
to extract it:
Code:
tar -xvjf <filename> 

-or-

tar -xvzf <filename>
substitute <filename> with the actual filename you want to extract. cd to that directory then
Code:
./configure && make && sudo make install

Problem solved

I downloaded Putty.exe and it worked a treat.

All the passwords are fine and I can do most of what I want now.

Note I am able to use make (saying Make was a typo).

All is well with this part of the world.

Thanks.
