systems are in dhcp (same network)

and 3-4 users want to work on the Linux server 64bit from windows machines

is there any possibility of accessing different users on Linux machine (root,hub,ora..) simultaneously ?

Sorry venku,
I don't quite understand...
If your looking for command line/shell access then I suggest
SSH (secure shell) or openSSH and as for multiple users simultaneously...
that's what Linux does.
It's a multi-user, multi-tasking OS.

SSH is probably already installed, just enable the daemon (on boot) if necessary.

As for the Windows machines, download a client like this one:
Putty SSH client for Windows

Is this a new install?
Do you have Linux Server experience?

Feel free to ask any question!! :thumbsup:

venku,
Where did you go?

I thought we were going to configure that server
for multi-user SSH (secure shell).

We never got to chkconfig the ssh daemon for
run levels 3 and 5.

Come on back :thumbsup:

RedHat 5.3 is horribly out of date. My first suggestion is to update to a newer version.
If you are wanting to use the server for file sharing you need to install Samba.

3-4 users want to work on the Linux server

What sort of work?

Hey venku,
Your back :thumbsup:

It sounds like your looking for something like openVPN
Here is their download site (source code)

You say you are new to Linux so I would suggest an .RPM package from the links below.
I assume you can unpack and install RPM packages.

First you will need to install this:
Pick the Package for your OS

Then you can install this:
Again Pick the Package for your OS

This documentation explains openVPN better than I ever could
openVPN documentation

So where do we stand?????
You will install the RPM packages and be able to get openVPN working.
OR
What's a RPM package and what do I do with it?
(In which case, we need to go over some basics first)

One more option would be VNC
or (Virtual Network Computing).

There is some configuring needed
or so I'm told, I've never used
nor saw a VNC connection in action.

I wouldn't be much help with this option,
maybe someone else...

Good news venku,

After my last post, I decided to try
vnc on my openSUSE box...
It was very simple and worked 2 different ways.

I installed tightVNC server and started it.
I also had to let the ports out of the firewall.

On a separate windows machine, I entered
the server name (could also use ip address) and port.
http://your-server-name:5801
and BAM!!! (sorry emeril) my graphical login on openSUSE.

To improve options and speed, I downloaded the UltraVNC viewer
(has support for Vista). Now I have my openSUSE box on any machine,
anywhere behind my router. Yes you can login to any existing account.
(VERY COOL!!) should have tried this earlier.

If anyone wants to know the exact technical details of my installation,
just reply to this thread.
