Question Open Linux Terminal from remote Windows machine

Hello Again!!!
Ok as you have read I want to open a LINUX terminal from a remote WINDOWS machine over TCP/IP and not from a serial connection.

The Question is what we have to do both at linux and windows systems respectavly

We tried a few tricks but they didn'd worked, exept for SAMBA which worked , but we don't wont the file and print services!!
I hope I didn't confuse you much

Ok we ffound it. It was so simple that i feel a little like an idiot but here is the answer .... With TELNET , but as a User and not as root because with the second is not permitable (!!?)

From there if you play a little with the options you will find it

(I must be the only one who answers his own quiestion !!!!)

I would have answered. but i (still) have no idea what you actaully meant in your question. You just wanted to use telnet? fair enough.

incidentaly, you can't telnet as root as telnet is extremely inseure, and the ability to send the root password over a network in plain text is daft to say the least.

There is a file in the /etc/ direcroty; i forget the name. It contains all of the devices (serial, telnet, etc) that root is allowed to login from. I suggest you use ssh instead of telnet, as your communications are encrypted, and you can login as root.

the SSH suggestion is the most likely to serve what you need. SSH is far more secure than telnet, and will give you full terminal funcionality from a remote system.

To use SSH from a Windows box to your linux host, you will need a program that can do SSH. My favorite is PuTTY, which gives both Telnet and SSH capability. Search on the internet for PuTTY and it should do what you need.
