I have two laptops, one is installed with Ubuntu 10.04, the other one is installed with Windows XP. The Ubuntu laptop is located in one place with internet connection while the windows laptop is in another place with internect connection too.
I know, the putty client can be used to access a Linux mahine from windows. But not sure how exactly can I access my Ubuntu machine from my windows machine?
Is it so that I only need to find out the IP address of my Ubuntu machine, then use that IP address as the Host Name on Putty, then enter my Ubuntu laptop username and password on Putty on my windows machine , I will get the access to the Ubuntu machine? Or is there any other tricks I am missing?
