using linux server remotely through windows


I want to access linux server remotely from windows. I precisely dont need GUI. Just want to work with vim editor. currently I am using ssh software and xmanger software. Running ssh software dosen't give the feel and speed. However xmanager is fine to work. Can somebody suggest me from where i can get free latest xmanager software or better then it.

your title doesn't match your question. Please change ;-) (so it's more clear for others)
I guess you need to go to the website of the developer netsarang (since it's commercial ware)

If you only want vim, I can't see how ssh wouldn't be the absolutely ideal solution. What else would you want.

And your title is fine.

I'm confused: you state that you don't need a GUI, but then that ssh doesn't give the feel and speed. What do you really need? You can check your ssh software, whether it allows compression, in case you would like to speed up the transfer over ssh.

let's see.. : "using linux server remotely through windows"
is this reflecting the content? it's not... he/she askes where to find the latest version of xmanager (since the other option: ssh is a no go for him/her)..
the title however implies he/she needs advice/guidence on how to control a linux server remotely with windows, which is not the case

SSH has the speed and security. That is the best if you are running by command line (which is what vim is). So I really don't understand why that won't work for you

thanks

ok , thanks everybody.
yes you all are right that ssh is complete for my use. but the ssh software i am using has some problems like backspace dosen't work, some of the advanced vim options like cntrl+V and shift+V dosen't work when i try to work with ssh software. Also when I search something in vim and again I want to do the same search it will not come using arrow keys and I had to always type it again. However when I work with xmanager, all these options works and gives better feel and comfort.

If you want just CLI (Command Line Interface) to work on Linux through windows, then just enable SSH & connect it with the help of Putty. Its totally free, fast & reliable than any other ssh product, even you don't need to install it on your PC. Else if you want to work on Linux GUI remotely then use TightVNC Viewer.
