    Out of curiosity is there any windows GUIs which give the user a more realistic look at the server (i.e. a windows explorer view of your Linux box). Instead of the traditional command prompt when using Putty? :confused:

    SSH is the most reliastic look you'll get, since Linux is NOT windows, nor will it ever be.

    It's server platform, and the GUI stuff, like KDE & Gnome is normally not installed, allowing you to utilise the most of your bandwidth.

    The closest you'll get to a windows explorer feel, is something like midnight commander in SSH, or otherwise some fancy file browsers, like used in cPanel.

    But remember, all you'll user will ever see, is in /home/user/ folder, unless he's a reseller or server owner.

    That makes sense; I’m looking for something that would only be used by the server admin. Not for customers. A win32 SSH GUI which allows the end user to login to there Linux box. The program would allow the end user to see the physical files and folders and execute commands from the GUI instead of using Putty which is only command prompt.

    Thank you, I'll try both. I think wincsp is more or less what I’m looking for. I'm not sure if you can execute files from wincsp. Chirpy's config explorer would come in handy when I'm at school and winscp is not available on the current PC.

    Really? I did not know this. That makes it even better yet:D I read some of the online documents, but i didn't see anything on this. I'm going to give it a test run later today. Thank you for the help:)
