Question Remote Control


Is there any way to remote control a linux server like a Windows 2003 termial session. So you can Access the linux box from anywhere with an internet connection. Im really new and know linux can do tons, but I'm still having trouble with the little things. I have a Suse 8.0 Standard Server that I want to control with my XP computer. Any help would be great thank

Great for Terminal Services-like access you could use TightVNC to get access to the currently logged on user. You could also look into using SSH, so you can get into your box even when nobody is using an X session on it, but then you'd only have the prompt ofcourse. (Unless your terminal program supports receiving X data, then you'd be able to open GUI programs remotely)

Have a look here for installation help and documentation:

http://www.tightvnc.com/docs.html

particularly interesting are the vncviewer/vncserver links. there's also a Windows version of TightVNC including documentation available, should you want to control your Linux box with a Windows machine.
