In this chapter, we looked at how you can access your SUSE Linux computer remotely across the Internet. We examined how you can access the computer as if you were sitting in front of it, using the ssh program. This allows you to start a command-line prompt and even run GUI programs on the remote computer.
In addition, we discussed how the screen program can be used to keep sessions alive across various logins, and how you can transfer files using the sftp program. Then we looked at how to use the YaST2 Remote Administration tool to share your desktop interface with a remote computer. Finally, you learned how to configure your firewall to allow remote connections.
