  1. In Topic: Setting up a Remote SSH Server from Scratch

    Pretty much. How you run those programs and how you install the build environment depends on what you're compiling and how you have it set up at school I guess.

    Which distro you use isn't going to make much real difference as far as you can see, so I'd say go with Ubuntu since it's got the biggest community. I can't remember if it installs an SSH service by default but if not:
    sudo apt-get install openssh-server

    is all you need (the installation process is different on other distros).
    Putty will serve as an SSH client from your Windows machine though istr it does SSH keys in a maddeningly different way to the rest of the world - for simplicity I'd just go with the default authentication using username/password rather than adding an SSH key into the mix. If your local client machine was running a better OS I'd be recommending the opposite!

    Thanks, I will check out Ubuntu then since it is better documented.

    If you're looking for a temporary and free solution, you should check out AWS EC2 cloud. It's free for a year, and you can fully configure your server. You won't have a dedicated machine, but it's something to consider, especially if you want remote access from anywhere. SSH is already setup.

    I heard about this, but didn't know it was free, thank you very much I will look into it!
