Remote access to CentOS

do you know any simple tutorial which does explain how to setup and connect from win7 to a vm machine running centos?

all my google search results return a lot of mumbo jumbo.

in vmware centos already is running, i only need to know how to connect with windows remote to it. i don't want to use utlravnc or any other client.

Linux CENTOS 7 / various Windows OS'es and servers

Hi there

This tutorial should cover both ends

The Virtual Machine is identical to a "Physical remote machine" so the instructions are identical.

Quick tutorial - secure remote login to your system with SSH | FOSSwire

This will show you how to get a TEXT based login. This is the easy part.

If you want a graphical login you'll need to have X running and start a VNC server on your box and use something like VNCVIEWER or tightVNC on Windows.

For file sharing between Linux systems and Windows you can use SAMBA quite straight forward and plenty of tutorials all over the web.

Search for putty. It's a simple executable. run putty. Connect to the IP address of the CentOS box. You are in.
