Remote Computing Access

Available Remote Computing Options

SSH with Putty

[[Putty] is a free and open source terminal emulator application which can act as a client for the SSH, Telnet, rlogin and raw TCP computing protocols and as a serial console client. The name "PuTTY" has no definitive meaning[1], though 'tty' is the name for a terminal in the Unix tradition, usually held to be short for teletype.

X11 Xming

Xming is the leading X Window Server for Microsoft XP/Vista/Windows7. It is fully featured, lean, fast, current, simple to install and because it is standalone native Microsoft Windows®, easily transported portable as a pocket X server.

Xming is totally secure when used with SSH and optionally includes an enhanced Putty Link SSH client and a portable Putty replacement package. Xming can work completely independent of the Window's registry when used with Xming-portablePuTTY.

Interactive 3D graphics capability is provided compatible with OpenGL/GLX.

Xming is cross-compiled on Linux for Microsoft Windows (32-bit x86), using MinGW, mainly from the canonical [WWW]X.Org source code with my patches applied. It is kept current and secure with frequent updates from X.Org, XKB, FreeType2, Pthreads-Win32, Mesa, PuTTY and Freedesktop Bugzilla.

When released Public Domain, Xming can be distributed and used without restriction.

Xrdp is an open source remote desktop protocol (RDP) server that allows you to use Remote Desktop Connection (RDP), and connect via rdesktop, freerdp, or remote desktop clients to your Linux Server from a Windows machine. Xrdp presents an X window desktop GUI to the user.
