Remote Login

sir ,

     i m working on a  project linux networking.


        say , there r 2 computers A & B  works on
Red Hat 9 version.

       There is a server program in each system.
It loads as a daemon.
There r many client programs which asks for services from one to another .Server process request and send back result .The whole network is  done by berkely socket() .. functions .

i  know that in linux before login prompt appears
all the daemons and network setup etc are loaded
or initialised .
 
      suppose i m working on system A . system
B is at Login Prompt. both server in systems
r working.
     

 my question:->
*************
      i want to control getty process on system B
from system A .

How about SSH?! You can login over IP and it's safe.

What do you want to do with the getty processes?  Are you trying to restart them? stop them? kill them? start more?

The login prompts are using getty.  These were started by init (see /etc/inittab).  That's why you can login in:-).

I thin that I'll need more data from you as to what you are trying to do.

Yeah, SSH.  ipuschner is right.

Make sure that the sshd is running on the host system (the ssh "server")then from the client, type:

ssh username@hostname

or

ssh username@hostipaddress

this gets you a session on the host box and you can execute commands just as if you were sitting at the console, mostly.  You might want to learn about nohup.
