I have logged in to the AIX machine, but while running a program it shows Not able to proceed because of out of memory or no memory.
Now I am not able to Login through either putty or filezilla.
When I try to do so, putty closes as click on connect.
Through fileZilla it shows 'Could not connect to server'

How can I login and clear machine, and run remaining program.

I believe AIX, like all Unix OSes, allocates 10% of memory for the super user only. How about trying to login as root, and fix the memory problem? I wouldn't recommend logging in as root to run the application though, as that is not what the safety net is for.

Unfortunately, if you are pass the point of being able to do that, then you probably can't do it remotely -- not unless you have a terminal server attached to the console port of the machine.

Thanks Henry for quick reply.
When I try to start putty using IP of the remote linux machine. It automatically exits.
I am not able to put any login user and password credentials.
and I am not able to directly or physically connect or login to machine.

As mentioned, if you are beyond the point of even logging in remotely as root, your only remaining option is to use a terminal server -- and quite frankly, you will likely be using it only to reboot the machine (as it is likely you won't be able to log into the console either).
