Do anyone knows how to remote Windows Computer in Linux Terminal?

Do anyone knows how to remote Windows Computer in Linux Terminal?
I mean using linux terminal connecting to windows command prompt or terminal.

I have search all about putty application that can connect to a unix terminal using ssh.

Now i want to know if it is possible to connect using linux machine terminal to windows machine.

Thanks in advanced.

Hi tailinlinux,

If you want to access windows' command line shell, you need to setup telnet server on your windows machine then connect to that telnet server through your linux shell.

You can also set up SSH server on windows machine and connect to that by using "ssh -l <username_defined_in_windows> <ip_or_hostname>" in linux.

PS: Telnet is not a good way of remote connection, because all credentials are sent over the network in clear text

hope that helps
