Hi everyone,
I recently installed Ubuntu on an older computer of mine. This is my first time using Linux. For school, I use a program called Putty to connect to their computer to write, compile, and submit programs for my homework. Is there a similar program that would allow me to do this in ubuntu or is there a way I can get puttY onto this computer?
Thank you,
Nick

Linux comes with telnet/ssh built in. Simply use the ssh command from a terminal window / console. :)

Ok, that's what I thought. I was trying that and couldn't get it to work. Can you reccomend any tutorials or Faqs for telnet/ssh clients?
Thank you for your help,
Nick

Really quick SSH howto:

at the command prompt, type in

ssh computer address

Where the computer address is the IP Address or hostname of the system you want to connect to. Enter in your username and password, and get to work!

...Connecting is just that simple.
