Remote connection to Linux


Hello

Until now I have been logging into my red hat system locally, but I want to login remotely, I know you can telnet/putty into the system, but I want to run installs that will be in graphical mode etc.

What’s the most common way to do this, I understand Red Hat has X server so I need a x windows client, I want to know what’s the most common way to achieve this, any info would be appreciated.

actually X is a reverse client-server model

the 'server' runs on the machine you are connecting from and the 'client' is the program that runs on the X server (any X program would be considered an X 'client')

as for remote, if you are doing a linux to linux connection try ssh -X machine then run the program from the command line
eg
gimp& (the & forks the process and allows you to keep using the terminal)

from windows with putty, you go expand connection, then expant ssh and click on X11 and check enable x11 forwarding, you also need a windows based x server like xming, then follow the same procedure as a linux to linux connection for running commands

Nx is good might be installed as freenx. See also 2x.com.

Also people tend to use VNC's over ssh.

X is good on a secure lan but really has high overhead and not really too secure. That is why people use other ways.
