    I would suggest ssh over telnet. It's basically telnet with encryption.

    http://openssh.org/

    And here are some howtos on setting up servers:

    SSH comes pre-enabled on almost all versions of Linux, including RedHat. Probably, you need nothing more than just connect. For a Windows SSH client, see putty:

    If your laptop runs windows, a nice free SSH client for windows is PuTTY:
