LXer: SSH Saves The Day.. 1400 Miles Away!

Published at LXer:

A few months ago I was in Chicago to take the Redhat Certified Engineer exam. One of the nights I was there (5 day course) my brother calls me in a panic begging me to come fix his computer. I of course tell him that Iím in Chicago at the moment and not sure what I can do to help. At that I can hear his heart sink, so I ask him what the problem is. He starts into this sob story about how he has a paper due in the morning but he canít get logged into his computer. Apparently his wife dropped something on the keyboard and the number row no longer works, which limits him from logging into his machine. He is, by my suggestion, using Ubuntu on his home machine so I know I can save the day.
