SSH help for a super noob.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone. This has probably been asked before but I looked and none of it could explain it well enough for me.
I got into building pcs about 6 months ago and I now have a few crappy ones people gave me that I messed with and 2 good ones I built. Anyways, my uncle told me I should put Ubuntu onto one of my crappy pcs and have some fun with it. I am a complete noob to anything outside windows and not that great software wise. So I tried the 10.10 desktop version but it froze up then I realized the pc didn't have enough RAM so I thought about trying to turn it into some form of server for some fun and experience. I then put ubuntu 10.10 server edition onto it. I got it installed with ease and now I am at a total road block. Command lines OMG. So I figured out how to login of course with ease and after screwing around I figured out shutdown and restart. Also learnt to use Sudo tasksel to install some of that software I skipped during installation. Then I installed OpenSSH Server onto it. I was told doing this would allow me to control everything from my Windows Vista pc. That way I do not need to run all the way to the basement to do stuff. (by the time I run those stairs 100 times it gets annoying). Also was told that it is very secure.
Please help me out guys. I have no clue what needs to be done next and no online guide so far is noob enough for me. I do not know what else needs to be done on the ubuntu server or on the windows pc.
Thanks sooo much in advance.

This looks pretty good. I don't have time to try it tonight but hopefully I can get to it tomorrow.
Also, is that Cygwin better then putty? I haven't tried either but I'v heard a lot about putty.

Putty gives you basic SSH. Cygwin gives you a few more tools.

I was fortunate and one of the guys in my gaming community knew a lot about it and walked me through it. Used putty and worked fine. Thanks everyone for your help.
