Hi there -
I set up my first Linux Box. I would like to run a VoIP program called Teamspeak on it and control it and the computer from a Windows machine on the same network. The little I can gather from my reading is to use ssh but I was hoping for some examples or confirmation that I am on the right track. Is this even going to be possible? Can I use the graphical interface remotely?
Thanks in advance for any thoughts.

It is possible for you to run graphical programs remotely from your windows box. That is the beauty of the X-Window system. It will require a lot of preparation of both computers to do, though.

For the windows box: you will need to install an X-Windows server. There are many available out there, but the free-est one I found is Cygwin/X. To use SSH tunnelling, you will also need an SSH client (PuTTY will work well).

On the Linux box, most of the software you need is already there, You just need to configure it. There is a lot of documentation out there on how to set up SSH and XWindows: and may be a couple of good places to start looking. As well, you can search for documentation on the subject in google.

Good luck getting everything set up.

Thanks for the post. Maybe I would be better off with text to start to cut down on configuration. What would I use for connecting in text mode on the Windows end?
