Remote into Suse Linux from Suse Linux


I'm setting up a webserver/email server running Suse Linux 9.3 Pro. I have a static IP through a Netgear router.

At home I have DSL with a workstation running Suse Linux 9.3 as well, I'd like to remote control the server via internet. What I'd like to know is what software can I use, and which ports do I need to direct to the server to allow it to pass through?


Thanks,

Robert

I assume you mean you want to log into the server from your home box. ssh is the standard tool for this, which you should have installed already. Read the sshd and ssh man pages.

Linux Gazette have frequently discussed ssh, so you should find some useful information there (www.linuxgazette.net).

I'll look it over. I was looking @ SSH, but wasn't quite sure if that is what I needed or not.

I neglected to also ask, how to remote login to a linux box also via the internet but from a Windows based machine (XP to be exact)? Would SSH also apply, or should I look into configuring VNC?


Thanks,

Robert

Use Putty to ssh in from Windoze. It's free.

If you really can't cope without graphical, then VNC is ok to get started with. It's pretty clunky, but gets there in the end.
