Remote Administration of Linux Systems
Introducing Remote Adnministration
August 27, 2002
Any system administrator who has to deal with two or more network servers will have to, at one point or another, solve the task of remote administration. Such an option can lead to better centralized control and supervising and help allocate (with preset limits) access for end-users.
Linux provides useful services for remote administration that even allow you to disconnect a monitor and keyboard from the server, leaving only a very secure system case, while keeping the full functionality and comfort as working with a local console.
In this article we will examine remote administration using the Red Hat Linux distribution. Path names and the format of configuration files in other distributions may vary.
