Portal:Remote access/Intro

Jump to: navigation, search

Welcome to the portal for remote access. Through this portal you can find various ways to set up remote access to your computer running an openSUSE distribution.

The definition of "remote access" is "Running programs on one computer while you sit in front of another". This could be done in a shell, or may require a full GUI environment.

Remote access implies the use of a network. This network can be both a Local network and internet connection. Although mentioned in some of the topics, it may be wise to be familiarized with networking and the SUSE firewall. Don't worry, you don't have to be a hard cooked networking admin to get remote access to work. Just make sure your network is running.
