Cygwin and Windows
Total newbie for please forgive!
Okay I have Debian Linux set-up on a server, and I wish to open that up on my laptop! However my laptop run XP, and there is no feasibility for an alternative O/S due to .NET development performed! Now I have heard about Cygwin and how you can open up a connection and perform related tasks! Just wondering if someone could provide further information on this? And how one would go about achieving this?
Otherwise, you can use PuTTY, which is a great Telnet and SSH client, to login to your Debian based server.
hi oliver79,Putty is simple and good(I use Putty too)
but if you still wanna use cygwin check out:
Thanks for that.
I revisited Cygwin installation guide and realised that I hadn't installed X!
Well it now simply a case of from bash shell:X -fullscreen -broadcast
And you're into your Linux server!
