How do I shell into a server on my LAN?

Heres the setup:

The gateway address of my lan is

The server has an internal static IP of

Forwarding for port 20-23, port 80-83 and a few others are directed to

How do I shell using putty, into the server? I typed on port 22, and it didn't work? I also tried

Also, is there a way I can log in remotely to the server, so that I can interact with a window manager like KDE directly? Kind of like that Gotomypc thing?

-Thanks a bunch


I tried logging into it through mozilla port 22, and it said that the port had been disabled for security reasons? Is that my router talking or the server? And how could I reanable it?

From your internat LAN try
telnet 22
If you get 'Connection refused' or similar it means you don't have sshd running on that machine. Start the service and you should be able to log in.

For graphical mode I suggest VNC. It gives you access to desktop on remote machine.

Thankyou!! I thought I had set the daemon to run automatically on startup during the slack install, but I guess I didn't. Do you know what file I need to put the line into?

I'll try VNC. I think its what I've been looking for

looks like your vncserver isn't set up to load the KDE desktop. I don't remember how to make it, but I've read several posts on it during the past week when I was having problems with VNC. If someone doesn't post how to here, I'm sure you can find it with a quick search.
