Remote Host

Running Linux Enterprise, Release 4
I am attempting to access Linux from a remote user. Is there a simple application I can test, i.e. import over the Network. How do I access that application through the command prompt?

SSH is the preferred remote connection software for command line use. You need to be running the sshd server on the destination machine, and you would then:

ssh -Y userid@destination

If you'd like to get a remote GUI desktop, after you ssh in, issue these commands (for example):

vncserver -geometry 1024x768 -depth 24 :4
vncviewer :4

When you are done:

vncserver -kill :4
