Terminal Services in SuSe Linux


Windows has Terminal Services for remote server management. What does Linux have? VNC? How to install? Everything is a bit of a pain right now because I have the internet connected to my Windows box and Linux on another box. To switch between the two I have to switch the monitor/ mouse cables between the two boxes. Once I can "terminal in", I will have alot more options with searching for these things myself and not need to post such silly questions. To top it all off not all of the help files made it successfully into my Linux install.

There's SSH, which is "secure shell".

It's very secure, and should be enabled by default.

On the windows machine install putty (or another ssh client) and ssh to your linux box, login using the username/password from your linux box.

Keep working on the linux box and install rdesktop for
the winDOHs thing? :)

There's a few products out there that will allow you to
use an X desktop remotely ... I've used the commercial
hummingbird and X-Win32 in the past, work very well,
it may (or may not) be possible to utilise the cygwin
X11 bits to get Linux apps to show on your windows
machine - I've never tried that (can't even stand the idea
of using windows as my primary OS these days ... ).



Cheers,
Tink
