    using ssh

    After groping about for a long time, i have now realised that the best thing suited for what i am trying to do is "ssh"
    I still have a problem. I have downloaded the tar-ball and correctly installed it on both my machines. I am still not able to log into my cluster machine through my slave.

    Here are the details:
    server machine :
    IP : 192.168.1.100
    Hostname : linux
    Domain : site

    Client machine:
    IP : 192.168.1.10
    Hostname : machine1

    And what exactly should i type at the client machine to log into the server machine.?
    This is what I have tried so far :
    # ssh root@linux.site
    didnt work
    # ssh root@192.168.1.100
    didnt work
    and some other combinations. still no positive result.

    remote access as root is often turned off by default. Check your settings or try a user account.

    yup.
    log in as a regular user and su for admin tasks is the recomended implementation. it maintains the security.
