Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Don't use rlogin! it's crazy insecure and it sends your password PLAIN TEXT across the internet. Use ssh on your redhat system it should already be installed. Run sshd on the redhat system and download a program called PuTTY for windows. Configure it to use port 22 and you're good to go
rpm -q openssh should tell you if you have ssh
man ssh and man sshd should tell you how to use them http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/ putty/download.html putty download sight
PuTTY and ssh are the way to go. As far as PuTTY goes, once you download it onto your windows box, just double-click to start the executable, and it will have a dialog asking which host you want to connect to, and which protocol you wish to use (hint: ssh). Click OK, and it will bring up a terminal window and ask you to log in.
Thanks for your help
but now ,It is not putty 's problem ,I take putty down and have run it ,but it can't connect to the linux.
I've opend ssh sevice using # service sshd start
but may be I have some problem with openssh ,and my linux was configured wrong! may you show me some suggestion?
I don't beleive putty lets you forward X11
Isn't rlogin that remote desktop program that NT has?
If you want to see the other computer's desktop there actually is a free program from that. Apparently a spinoff from a reasearch project at AT&T. I've used it many times to reapair some of my friend's windows computers. Since I don't have windows, it's the only program that is truly cross-platform that I could find.
ssh is nice, and very useful, but sometimes getting the other computer's desktop is important too http://www.realvnc.com/
Regardless you can't forward X11 windows to an NT desktop. If you're trying to log into your computer at work from your computer at home, first find out if your company has a firewall or something that would prevent you from getting there, next make sure you know your ip address and that it's not an internal lan only address such 192.168.*.*. Next see if there's a sysadmin available who can help you set everything up...finally maybe get linux at home..haha just kidding, but seriously ask your local systems administrator about your problem.
Thanks a lot for your help!
but may be I didn't express clearly ,what I want to do is to log in linux from my home computer(windows) so, the linux is server and the windows is client ,but when I open the ssh service , isn't the linux be client ?
I am a newer ,and so puzzle ,
What do you mean by opening the ssh service? What you're probably doing is invoking the ssh program from coomandline.
You need to launch the ssh server (the ssh daemon (note the spelling, it's what servers are called under *nix)
Maybe I can clear things up (I'm a newbie as well).
My situation was very similar...I have RH9 at home and W2K at work....so I started the sshd program at home (notice sshd is a daemon, so it's a "server" not a client).
Then from work on my Win2K machine I installed Cygwin....this way I can ssh into home AS WELL as forward my X11 desktop to my Win2K machine (I did try the mi/x thing but it wasn't free; cygwin is).
Note a couple of things...
1) my work has a firewall/proxy setup...so I had to use htc/hts to go through the firewall/proxy.
2) Forwarding X11 is way cool, but to be honest from all the tests I've done, using VNC is faster than forwarding X11 and it's the same end result.
