hi
i am planning to host my web application on solaris server but i dont have any knowledge about solaris in fact i never used it i only need to work with samp which are the main stuff like apache mysql php i have been told by the host company that i need to use Putty to access it remotely i am just wondering if there is a good GUI tool for this purpose since putty is a command line utility or maybe i dont know much about it.

putty uses ssh protocol to access remotely the system. It let you connect to the system securely and login to the system and run shell scripts, commands, etc. It has a component to transfer files to and from the system.

What is your requirement from the remote system?

you can edit any text file using editors on the system like vi, but this requires vi knowledge.

when you say "probably accessing apache mysql or php configuration" do you mean text config files?

ok, so how do you prefer to access these files and probably modify them? if you want, you can use tools like winscp to transfer files to and from solaris:
