View Full Version : [ubuntu] Using Putty

January 2nd, 2010, 05:14 AM
Hi, I am new to using Ubuntu but I have installed ubuntu karmic koala on my laptop and am dual booting ubuntu and xp on my desktop. I am wondering how I go about setting up putty so I can view my desktop from my laptop because I travel quite frequently. So if anyone can give me a general idea of how to get started using putty I would appreciate it.

If you are going to be accessing xclients from windows, you should google xlivecd. I know some people where I work use it and it's seems okay. Other than that, you can use vnc for the entire desktop.

Awesome thanks for the suggestions I'll try them out. I always like experimenting with new progams. Which is why I installed linux in the first place....... that and my xp got blacklisted.
