Re: Re: [K12OSN] Logging onto the server from a windows machine



This is a simple solution which may not meet your needs.

You can carry a diskette with PuTTY on it. PuTTY is a 348 KB exe file which is quickly installed on a Windows box if it isn't locked down. PuTTY allows terminal access to any server over a network if a telnet (not advised) or ssh (advised) daemon is running on the server. You will need an account on the target server with sufficient permissions to do your work.

PuTTY is not graphical -- it provides a terminal window. If you need a general purpose ncurses file manager/file editing tool, install Midnight Commander (mc) on the server. MC runs fairly well in a remote terminal window.

anything that is an executable program type file.  These turkeys have even
got boot security so you can't start from a floppy or other removable media.
