Thread: what software to use for x-terminal ?

  1. #1

    Default what software to use for x-terminal ?

    From a Windows XP computer, I'd like to link to an openSUSE system through an x-terminal session. Is there any freeware out there that works nicely?

    Is your goal simply to get access to a terminal on your Linux box from
    your windows box? If so make sure your host-based firewall in Linux is
    not blocking port 22 (SSH) and download Putty (Google for it) and that
    should work nicely. You can also install cygwin on windows and get a
    full shell there including SSH client (like Putty is) there too. If you
    go with the Putty option download putty.exe, pscp.exe, and plink.exe and
    put them all in /windows/system32 on your windows box.

    Good luck.

    I just installed NX, then, I logged in from a Windows XP computer to the openSUSE system.

    It works fine. All the icons from openSUSE gnome look "graphically correct". But when I tried to run some 3rd-party graphical software from the Windows XP xsession, I can tell the graphics is not coming out right.

    For example, a pop up window has text (from the openSUSE system), but if I look at it from the xsession from the Windows XP, those texts are looking like small squares.

    What can I do to fix this type of problem?
