Remote connections


I want to work on a pc without display, keyboard, mouse, whatever, via a network. How can I do this?
I was thinking of SSH and Kerberos, but for Kerberos I need a server which I don't have . And how can I make connections to the X Server on this pc?
Another thing: how can I copy files to this pc from windows? I was thinking of SCP but I don't know for windows... And hm... how can I disable the password for SCP, e.g. by putting the password in the command line? Or should I simply set no password (for this pc without display etc.).

Now you're thinking: why does he want this? That's quite simple. I want to make a pc which stores all backups. My windows network corrupts all files, so thats why I chose for linux (and linux in text mode is lots faster)! Of course, I also want to gain some more linux experience of this .

Get ssh from www.ssh.com and then VNC (for remote desktop) from http://www.uk.research.att.com/vnc/

SSH has a file transfer client in it as well. If you want it to work both ways you can download a Win32 server version.

X is multiuser and network transparent...so I think it must be possible to do this without VNC?
And how can I connect with these dynamic IPs? With "ssh root@mercure" from the other pc it won't work, I need "shh root@192.168.1.100" which is dynamic. Is this fixable?

Ah just "ssh -X root@192.168.1.100" lets me run X applications...but I want to be able to really work on this desktop, like pressing CTRL+ALT+F8 shows a session on the remote desktop . How???

Do a google for a program called WinaXe... it runs an XServer on your windows desktop which you can use to connect to your Linux boxes.

Well, the Win part of WinaXe denotes that its a win32 system <g>. I'm not sure about linux-linux incarnations of a system apart from VNC.

Just google for linux-linux remote desktop or something similar and I'm sure you can come up with something.
