Have you tried SSH?
I have just install a fedora Linux Box and that has installed all okay
And it can access the internet and has a fixed ip set
with a hostname of linux.cc3-hilbre
What I want to know is the following
I want to ad this computer to my windows AD/network.
At the moment i can ping it ip address and it response but that is it I cannot VNC to it even thou i have setup the remote desktop settings
My workstation say it cannot find linux box.
What i want to do with the linux box is to setup it up as a spam filtering and AV system for our email.
Can someone please tell me step by step what i need to do to add the linux box to win2003 network/ad
I will tacke spam/AV after i got the above to work
Reason i need to remote access box is it will be stored away in a cupboard and will not have a monitor etc connect so access to it will be very limited.

As the above has suggested. Install the SSH server to your linux machine if its not already installed and use a client like putty or for more bells and whistles try bitvise tunnelier.Originally Posted by beast_gts
Another thought: did you try to connect using hostname or IP address?
Are you sure you've set the subnet mask correctly. Remember if you're trying to access from a different subnet you're going to have problems if the mask is 255.255.255.0
For eg all our servers were on 192.168.3.0 and the clients were on different subnets.......i spent 4 hours puzzling why i couldnt SSH to the server...it was cause i'd not set the subnet mask correctly.
It's just a though for something to check
If you're trying to join it to a domain, which i've managed, but never got it to authenticate properly, use winbind.
Remote access use SSH. Or if you're not proficient enough at command based management you could setup the xserver on it with VNC access or failing that install Webmin.
if you can ping it from your windows machine - can you connect to it using the ip address in VNC?
If not, does either machine have a firewall that might be preventing access?
If it's essential to join the domain, I made some notes, but I don't think it's necessary for just email filtering.
