    Default Remote connection

    Okay I know theres some information on it but it was really confusing and I'm not sure if it would work for the example I need.

    O and I hope this is in the right forum

    I want to do a remote connection maybe a remote shell for a person using windows vista to remote connect my SUSE workstation computer. ?not really sure this is possible

    How do i set it up so the person can access my computer remotely and also how do i let the other person remote access my computer like which IP address do i need to give him?

    You could do this with samba or with ftp. There's howto's about it on openSUSE.org

    Where is this person? Out on the internet or in your local network? What exactly do you want him to access?

    With Linux my friend, ANYTHING is possible.

    Have the person on Windows use Putty, which is an SSH client for Windows. With that they can SSH into your Linux box. It is even possible to forward applications from the Linux box and have then appear on the Windows desktop. (To forward apps, basically: Configure X forwarding in Puttty, Configure X Forwarding in /etc/ssh/sshd_config on Linux, install an X sever on windows (like Xming). SSH into sever and the app you run will appear on the Widows machine. It's like magic.)

    Whatsmyip.org will tell you our Internet (outside WAN) IP. You will have to configure your router to forward a port it is listening on to port 22 or the server running SSH.

    Have fun!

    See the reply from LewsTherinTelamon. One addition I may make would be to
    allow SSH (Secure Shell, TCP/22) access from within Yast: Security and
    Users: Firewall. SSH works by default out of the box but the firewall
    also protects it out of the box and opening this port (or whichever port
    you reconfigure SSH to listen on) will be required for somebody to connect
    from a remote machine whether that's in your own network or from the
    Internet with the port forwarding that LewsTherinTelamon mentioned is also
    possible.

    One other addition.... if you are providing access over the Internet
    change your SSH port to some high, random port to prevent a lot of junk
    and easy attacks.

    Good luck.
