Remote shells and remote desktops provide administrators with access to systems located on a remote network. Remote shells, commonly found on Linux systems, provide administrators with command-line access to a system located on a remote network. Remote desktops, commonly used on Windows systems, provide administrators with graphical access to the desktop of a remote system. Learn how administrators use ssh and RDP to gain remote access to a network.
- [Instructor] Earlier in this course, you learned…how remote users can use virtual private networks,…or VPNs, to virtually place their devices…on a remote network, using an encrypted internet connection.…There are two other technologies commonly used…to gain remote network access,…remote shells, and remote desktops.…Remote shells, commonly found on Linux systems,…provide administrators with command line access…to a system located on a remote network.…The user sees the normal Linux prompt,…and may interact with the server…as if he or she were present, at the keyboard.…
Remote desktops, commonly used on Windows systems,…provide administrators with graphical access…to the desktop of the remote system.…In early Linux systems, remote users used a protocol…called telnet, to gain remote shell access to Linux systems.…However, this protocol was not built with security in mind.…It doesn't use any encryption, and,…anyone eavesdropping on a telnet connection…can see everything that the user is typing,…along with the remote system's responses.…
