Question How to access dual home wireless / wired network Linux headless server ?

Hi All,

I want to learn / study Linux by using my spare HP Desktop dc7700 PC without monitor (headless) so I wonder if the following scenario is working with Ubuntu / KUbuntu Linux:

(see the attached)

my question is that is it possible to access the Linux using the wired network supposed the wireless adapter/network is not connected to the current main wireless but through the ethernet using direct cable connection ?

The ultimate goal is to be able to connect to the Linux server using VNC from the Windows Server and then scan the wireless LAN for weak password with aircrack or any other tools from ( because I know that windows cannot be used for such thing anymore.

You can use SSH and VNC to connect to a server. SSH is generally command line only. Tools such as putty can be used for SSH connections.

You'll need to install SSH on your Ubuntu box. You can do this by typing 'sudo apt-get install ssh'

Ubuntu has a remote desktop option which will allow you to configure VNC for remote connections.
