question: accessing unix servers

I just installed mandrake 10, and I want to know how to access my school's unix server. In windows, I use a freeware called cygwin, and I type: ssh -X -l username server_address and then I enter my password, but when I type ssh in the kde konsole , it says command not found, am I missing a package or something? thanks in advance for your help.

find / -name ssh -print 2>/dev/null

If you dont have it installed then you simply need to install ssh (the client). You can install the server too if you would like to accept connections as well, say from the school`

After you get it installed just open a shell and type:


Then your pass and your in'
