Question rlogin or remote access via internet

Im still sorta green at unix, but we are running SCO open server Enterprise 5.0.5 at the office and I want to be able to login in via my comcast (high speed cable modem) from the house.

What and where do I start as far as setting this up? The server is on a LAN, behind a DHCP router. But the server has a permenantly assigned IP at least on the LAN.

So am I looking at needing to get a static IP to get things rolling?

And if so can you all get me started in the right direction as far as security goes once I have this duck sitting on the live wire?

Thanks in advance!!!!Smilie Smilie

Assuming there is no firewall in the way, just use ssh to connect:

ssh -l <username> <remotehost>


If there is a firewall you will have to punch a hole in it to allow access. Talk to your network administrator.
