Need help with Putty


Recommended Posts

you need to enable ssh. go to redhat menu -> System Settings -> server settings -> services

look for sshd. and start that services. so you should be able to connect the ssh via putty.

 

remeber allow port 23 for ssh.

 

in command (console) i don't know how to start the services in console.

 

so hope this help ya

If you are not able to use service you can: /etc/rc.d/init.d/sshd start

Once you start that service does it become automatic upon reboots? sry, I'm a n00b at this.......

and is Putty better/easier than XWin (xfree86.cygwin.com)? as of today I began cfg XWin on my win XP PC, but haven't got it working yet, to connect it to my Red Hat 9 PC (and install WINE to go the other way)

in redhat-config-services you can tell what service starts automatically on bootup

 

use putty to access a shell (console/terminal) on a linux box from windows :)

 

use VNC to access the GUI on a linux box from windows,

 

vnc is included with redhat 8/9/fedora, just goto the package manager and check server tools, install it if it isnt installed and then type

 

vncserver in a console to start it and set a password

 

cheers
