Linux and access to Shell

 4:01 pm on Mar 9, 2002 (gmt 0)

Sorry people I am quite new in Linux stuf.

How can I access the Shell in Linux shared server?

My ISP told me to write:

Start > Run > Telnet #####

Hi Alex, are you trying to flak to a Linux server from windows? There are lots of term programs. Most servers use ssh today (secure shell). If you just need a terminal emulator try Tera Term [hp.vector.co.jp], it is free and works good.

If you need ssh then try Putty [chiark.greenend.org.uk] it is also a great free program.

There's a ssh add-on for teraterm. Go here [zip.com.au] to pick it up.

It's SSH v1 protocol only, though. Some sites are turning off ssh-v1-protocols and forcing ssh access via v2 only. It is still worth trying this add-on to see if it'll work (since teraterm is quite spiffy).

The question for Alex is -- what are you running on your desktop? We need to establish where you are at before we can detail a path to where you want to go.

Thanks Windsor! I didn't know that was out there and I use Teraterm exclusively. Putty has umm - not been good to me on windows (couldn't get it to work at all)

Yeah thanks Rob. I forgot about the teraterm add-on. If I remember right there were some hacking required to get it to work, but it worked nicely after that.

Brett, I never had a problem with Putty, and I've put it on probably a dozen machines. I think it is the only free ssh2 compatible windows client out there. It must be that Opera downloader corrupting your files... just kidding!

I think it was something to do with having a direct connection to the net. It would fire up fine, but I couldn't get it to connect at all.

ttssh is working perfectly. Love that compression!
