1. Establish a secure connection: Secure connections can be established using SSH, a secure user authentication protocol. Make sure both computers are connected to the same network and you have access to the remote server. You can then open a terminal window on your Linux desktop and use the ssh command to connect to the remote server. For example, if the IP address of the remote server is 192.168.1.130, you can type ssh [email protected]
in the terminal window to initiate the connection.
2. Log into the remote server: Once connected, you will be asked to provide the username and password (if applicable) of the remote server.
3. Copy files: You can copy files from your Linux desktop to the remote server using the scp command. For example, scp <path of local file> <username>@<remote_server_IP>:<path of remote directory>.
4. Execute remote commands: You can execute remote commands on the remote server using the ssh command itself. For example, ssh [email protected]
You can also use FTP or SFTP to transfer files between your Linux desktop and the remote server.
