Default Remote Connection To Linux from Windows

Is anybody one aware of any tool that allows remote desktop connection like the one we have in windows?

i.e I want to connect remotely to Linux box and access the desktop the way we use REMOTE DESKTOP IN WINDOWS. Since Tetelnet is not working.

I have windows 2003 server and I want to connect to linux Redhat 9.0 using remote. I want to access the desktop of linux (Not TELNET TYPE):)

Hi

Try using VNC client/server for a graphical connection, and ssh to use bash.

Cheers

I have used VNC with success on my RH 7.3 box. You can get more info about VNC from http://realvnc.com/

Besure to read up on it though. Be aware of what ports need to be available if you are using a firewall.

Good luck.

Hi all

Got an email from someone else with this problem, so thought I'd post it here:

>Okay: I am running Linux Red hat verion w3 on a workstation. I do
>simulations on the same. I was trying to get access to this system from my
>home PC which is running on windows xp home. I need to access my research
>linux workstation from my windows pc at my residence. How do I go about
>this?. All I know is there is something called VPN client for windows and a
>SSH for linux. Thats it. Can you assist me with step by step procedure to
>set up remote access as mentioned above. Thank you in advance,

Well, it sounds as if your research machine is in a university. If you are to connect to your research pc, you need it to be a server. Any server behind a router (which is being accessed via the www) needs to have the router configured properly so it forwards packets on port X to your machine. Unfortunately, your university network admin probably wont do this for you. However, if you ask your department admin *very* nicely (s)he might give you a dns record, so that all packets sent to mycomputer.computing.university.edu are forwarded to your computer.

if (s)he does this, all you need to do is run the VNC server on your linux pc, and the VNC client on your win pc (it's often as simple as downloading it and then running it (after compiling/setup)).

If (s)he does not do this, you have a problem.

If you can set up your home pc as a server, you might be able to find a way around this problem, but if the uni is providing your internet connection for you they're unlikely to forward packets to you, and you have the exact same problem as you did with your research pc (UNLESS they're both directly under the same router, in which case you can connect via the LAN).

Best thing is if you can find out more info on your uni network.

Cheers
