Hi, I'm new to Linux. I want to install Suse on my desktop. I already have Windows 2003 Server in my system so I have installed VMware and I installed Suse. Now my question is I want to connect to Linux using putty from my Windows OS. Please tell me how to configure this?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I’m assuming you installed Vmware server.

If you are using NAT or Host-only for the virtual machine network adapter, you will need to configure the Vmware dhcp server.

You can find information on how to do that in the VMware Server User’s Guide in the ‘Advanced networking topics’ section.

And, in the Linux machine, you have to have SSH installed in order to use Putty to connect to it.

Here is a guide you might find helpful: Installing ssh on S.u.S.E. Linux.

    Linux runs special program/ service called secure shell/ ssh which is designed for logging into system and executing commands. By default ssh server runs on all linux flavors. After installing putty, open the application and select ssh radio button and specify a connection name by typing hostname/ ip address of linux. Now click to open button to connect to linux. A box appears where you accept server host key by clicking yes. Now type your user/ pass to access it. Remember, if you try to access it as gui based, then you have to install Tightvnc on both the OS.
