    I am using Kbuntu version 7.10 on two computers, one a clone box desktop and the other a Dell D600 laptop. When I was running SuSe I could open a command line and ssh from one box to another. I have not be able to do that with Kbuntu. There is a remote desktop utility built into KDE that lets you take control of the other system but it requires someone be at the keyboard of the remote system to accept the connection. Anyone have an easy way to remote into the desktop of another system on the same router and move files back and fourth? Thanks in advance for any help.

    Hi wa3fkg,

    Did you try opening a Terminal window in KDE? That would give you command line capability.
