HI All,

How to connect to linux system from command prompt ? Can i use the same command in a bat file to connect? I installed putty and winscp in my windows machine. I am able to connect to the LINUX machine using that but how w ewill connect from command prompt and how we will transfer files from windows to LINUX.

Is rsh command is useful for this ? while i tried it from command prompt its saying that rsh is not an internal and external command.

Thanks & Regards

One usually connects to a Linux/Unix machine using SSH as the basic communication for all access.
For shell access, you can just use ssh and the machine name

ssh dns-name.of.linux.machine

For file transfers, good practice is to use sftp, which is ftp over SSH. commands such as scp (secure copy) use sftp

All of this can be done in the GIU world with winSCP and Putty.

If you want shell programs to do this, you have to install them.

" is not an internal and external command. " is a standard Windows error message. It means that there is no such program installed as a command. It might be installed and not on your path, or it may not be installed.

Find one and install it properly
