Hi, I am really knew with linux, well, I am using Fedora9. Just wanted to know if I can connect the Fedora that I have on my laptop to the linux server from school, so that when I open my terminal I can choose if I want my profile connected to localhost or my school network. And if so, how do I accomplish that?

How do you want to connect?

I just want to be able to work at home, as if I was working at school.

I realize that I can simply use putty.exe, but just wanted to know if I could simply make my computer like an extension to the school's network.

if you have ssh externally available, you can tunnel anything through it

Could I simply remote login using the terminal?

that's what ssh is for

ok thx.
