remote shell access

Remote (and secure) access to another system makes use of the ssh package.

At its simplest, this provides secure copying from one machine to an account on another remote machine:
scp file user@remote_machine:~
Login to the other machine can be automated by creating a private/public key pair to sign the access. The public key is added to the authorized keys of the destination account. The private key must be kept secure.

Make better

Posted 05-07-2011 at 11:33 AM by alan_ri (Thoughts and other things about Linux, GNU, FOSS etc.)

As one can see on the site there are at this very moment;

[B]3256 screenshots online[/B]

But the fact is there are almost 30000 Debian packages out there, which suggest that there are many screenshots missing. Screenshots are very useful in Synaptic Package Manager for example, because it can obviously give you a picture of what you want to install. The process of uploading a screenshot is simple as it can be, so help make Debian better by uploading screnshots of some apps...

sharing files from Windows machines

Posted 05-07-2011 at 07:07 AM by neonsignal

To access files shared from Windows machines, install the package smbfs.

Shares on the other machine can be listed:
smbclient -L windows_machine
Shares can be mounted to a local mount-point (ie an empty directory):
smbmount //windows_machine/share share -o user=username
or using mount directly:
mount -t smbfs -o username=username //windows_machine/share share
