Accessing server with SSH

Posted 02 November 2011 - 03:02 PM

Hi all!

I just decided to use a dedicated server for my hosting project. I signed the SLA and the guys put it all up for me.

One thing though, I am using Windows 7 on my personnal computer, and the server works with CentOS Linux. Basically, what I wanna do is access the server like I was on the machine, exactly like Windows Remote Desktop Connection.

I installed putty on my computer, I manage to login using "root" and my password. I can do everything I want in command line. About the GUI, I heard about Xming. Tried it, but can't get something real.

Any advice on that?
Thanks!

Resolved.

Logged in using Putty with IP and port 22 (for SSH connection)
Added a tunnel for L5901 to <ip>:5901
Opened <ip>:5901 with TightVNC
Entered password
