nwbie in UNIX

I dont want to scare any body but i just had my first class in UNIX system programming. I am loooking for free SSH  which i can connect to the school server which as far as i understood is Solaris. Also, i will need C editor. I was told for lemma but i would try anything which you consider for better. Also, if anyone had useful sites for beginning i will greatly appriciate.
Thanks advance,

puTTY - http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/download.html - is a free SSH client.  Presumably you have dial-up or network access to the server?

thanks, i have cable at home so i think its going to work, i will try it right now..

I'm surprised the school didn't give you the details of where to get puTTY (or another free SSH client) and a suitable C editor (any editor will do, but one that allows you to open multiple files might be easier). Are you developing your C code on a PC & then uploading it for compilation?

There are some programming resources listed at

lol... yea it was the first day of class, i think they will give us more details during the ne t class..
Hehe - Maybe they don't want you logging in until they've set some ground rules - Like, "Don't rewrite the kernel just 'cos you can" and "If you trash the server, you get to stay up all night fixing it".

Anyway, enjoy the course and may you fix more vulnerabilites than you create ;-)

lol.. i wish i would know that much in order to trash the server but right now i am pretty much on ground 0. perhaps in 2, 3 weeks..;-)
