Remote access from Windows 2000 into Solaris 8

All,

I am looking for the easiest solution that will let me remote access from a Windows 2000 client into a Solaris 8 server. Any suggestions?

Thanks Kevin

sure... open the dos prompt and use a "telnet" session. if you would like a more secure communication, you should use sshd on solaris and a ssh client (like putty) on windows...

Duke,

I am able to telnet into my solaris server and use CLI. However, I need to open a remote session to access the GUI application functions. Will sshd and ssh do this for me?
