Hi,

PuTTY is just a Windows SSH client, so you should be able to do the same from Linux with the command "ssh".

So, if I've understood your scenario correctly, this should work:

$ ssh 61.85.76.56

Hope this helps,

Regards,

Rob

Thanks for the reply, but 61.85.76.56 is our routers address from there(from router to intranet) we connect to an intranet and my machine ip is say 192.168.0.45.So i want to connect to my machine please do let me know how this can be accomplished.
