Question How to you access a second server hard wired to the server you can access with Putty?

I work on two servers. Only one is connected to the internet. I can putty to that server. From that server's command line, I want to login to the other server -- more specifically, I want to login to the db2 database on the other server. I have to deal with this hardwired connection between the two servers. I used to be able to putty into the database server with the db2 username and password, so if I can mimic that from the command line I'm set. When I try to telnet to the second server I'm denied. If I could telnet and get a login username/password prompt that would be perfect.

Do you mean, how do you log into another server via SSH under Linux?

Just type:

ssh user@server
