    About remote access


    Hi folks,

    Most the time I run OpenSSH/SSH taking control of a remote Linux/Unix PC for administration via Internet/Public IP. Now I need taking remote control of a Windows PC through Internet/Public IP. But OpenSSH dosen't work on Windows. OpenVPN/VPN is only attaching the local PC to a remote network through a secured line. What will be the alternative of OpenSSH which works on Windows. I don't need GUI only to work on console. TIA

    B.R.

    teamviewer beta works well (for working on windows from linux)
    teamviewer.com/download/
    (free for personal use)
    -OR-
    SSH Tunneling with RDP (Good for Windows -to- Linux(sshd server) -to- Windows using Putty...Linux can be used too)
    (for RDP Client on Linux sourceforge.net/projects/rdesktop/ )
