    Hi. Sorry I'm a hardcore noob in this area. What do you use to run commands on to the server. The OS for my server is linux and I'm on windows xp.

    Hello,

    I thing you are trying to use linux serve from your windows local machine but it will be happen when you are having two local machine one with the linux OS and other local machine with the wndows OS. Then you need to install SSH software on your windows OS local machine.You can search the putty software from google search option or refer following URL to download the putty software on your windows OS local machine

    I hope it will help you :)

    Hi,

    after downloading connect to your server by filling the following fields.
    1. host name (or ipaddress) such as 192.xx.xx.xx or server1.help.com
    2.port number default is 22 if you have other port numbers please specify

    click open or hit enter

    you have logged into server
    then it asks for login> root
    password >(your password)

    Hi,

    You can use the program PuTTY that allows you to connect securely to your linux server from your windows machine. Once you are connected to the server, you can send commands to it.

    To use putty:-
    --------------
    1.Download Putty (putty.exe): http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/download.html
    2.Launch Putty: Double-click on the file you just downloaded to launch the PuTTY Configuration window.
    3.Enter 'yourdomain.com' in the field for 'Host Name (or IP address)' and select 'SSH' for the 'Protocol'. Then simply press the 'Open' button.
    4.Accept host key If this is the first time you have connected to this server, a window will pop up that asks you about the server's host key being cached in the registry.
    5.Enter username and password After accepting the host key, the regular PuTTY terminal window will pop up.

    Regards,
    Jave
