Hi

Just wondering if anyone knows how can I connect my computer to SSH using Putty. Well, it's not about connecting to my distant server, I need to connect to my home PC where I work, using Putty.

Anybody?
Thanks.

Hello

Just download putty on your home computer.
Click on putty icon provide IP address for your home
computer and then provide user name and password
to access the specified pc/server.

Hello is it a UNIX based OS or Windows ? If it is an UNIX uses SSHD properly configured. If Windows find SSHD solution for Windows or use telnet. You may use some good Remote admin programs like Access Remote PC and etc.




Thanks.

Hi guys

Thanks for your replies ... well, I am already having putty installed in my computer, so may be I would like to go with that if possible. Problem is that, it asks for IP address and port to enter, while in case of the remote server I can use what my host has provided me, what I would use here?

I need -

1. An IP address - my computer uses dynamic IP (windows XP)
2. Port - well, may be I could try with 22
3. Username - what I will use here
4. Password - and what will come here as well, since it is my home computer?

Thanks for any help guys. I am struggling with this since more than 6 hours now ... :confused:

You cannot SSH to a windows machine unless you have installed some sort of SSH daemon. You're better off trying to use RDC (Remote Desktop Connection) or PCAnyWhere. Other than that, you're also better looking for help on this on the microsoft site as this is not cPanel related.

For your dynamic ip solution, you could use a service such as dyndns.org for free.
Many routers will perform the login and updates automatically and a router
would help keep you connected as well if you are on dsl.

Otherwise, simply use their free updater client. You can then assign yourself a
host name that will always be reachable no matter what your ip may be.

As for your remote solution in addition to what everyone else offered, I like using
many of the VNC projects. Most will work cross platform for remote control
desktop.
