remote login to linux machine from windows

Hi,

I have bought a centos 5 linux server. I can telnet the server from my system. I want to remote login into the server and see the GUI. How can i do? I am new to Linux programming.

I have tried xManager. but getting error messages like

bash: /usr/X11R6/bin/xterm: No such file or directory
bash: /usr/share/terminfo/x/xterm: Permission denied

your comments will be helpful.

Regards,
Rajesh

Dear Sir,

You can install PUTTY on your window machine from http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/download.html...

You can use even Secure CRT or SSH secure shell

is this server inside your network ?? or it located outside of your network ??

if this is inside of your network, then you can use vnc viewer to get remote desktop of linux server

if this server is outside of your network, then you can install NIX server , and you can use NIx software to get linux gui


also for ssh to get gui, have a look this one

Oops... More info:

You can type yum list *vnc* to see what is available via the yum software tool, or you can download one and install from source.

If you need a client for your windows machine I use tight VNC.
