    AIX help needed

    helloo everyone...

    first of a confession....i dont know a word abt AIX...learning it command these days.

    as i was to start from dark i thought AO be the first community to light my way.

    The prob is my place has a AIX 4.3 on RS/6000 and they want to me to work on it.
    The first thing to do with this is to attach intelligent clients to it, so that person using intelligent client can connect and logon AIX and wok there...intelligent client can have windows or linux.

    all intelligent clients and AIX will be on the same LAN.

    for the time being we have connected dumb terminals to linux server. and dumb terminals are booted from a dos bootable and then ILINKS s/w is used which allow them to logon linux server.

    so i am looking forward to solution for this.

    thx to all in advance.

    Hi... glad to know somebody is using AIX too...

    I don't really understand what you want to do. But if the RS/6000 has an ethernet card and is connected to the same LAN as the Windows and Linux clients, then those clients can easily login via telnet or Xwindows.

    What you have to do in the AIX side is to setup the proper IP address, and enable telnet and Xwindows (both are enabled by default). Then the clients can connect to the RS/6000 by using telnet program (and redirect the GUI display to their machine using Xwindows, if necessary).

    Let me know if you need more info this.

    Peace always,

    May I suggest nuking telnet and implementing SSH2 instead?
    Shouldn't be to hard for your users to switch and your security will improve a lot.
