Ubuntu – How to login into a Ubuntu machine from Windows


We have Windows Vista/XP machines connected to a Win 2k3 server in our LAN environment. We recently got few laptops configured w/Ubuntu 11 and we would like to enable our Windows users to remote login into these Ubuntu machines (e.g. with their own user id(s)) so that they can work on them.

What should I do to achieve this?

Note: We don't want to use anything like TeamViewer or VNCViewer …, we just need terminal access to these machines so that we can compile/run programs.

if your goal is to access to a remote Ubuntu machine just by terminal connection, you can use ssh. You've to install openssh-server by apt on Ubuntu and use for example Putty from windows.
