To get a sense of what's to come (and for the power users out there), the following provides a condensed version of the detailed procedure given below.
The cross-platform SSH (Secure SHell) protocol is used to access one computer (the host) from another (the client) using a command-line interface (CLI). The SSH protocol uses a client/server model. The SSH client software requests a secure connection while the SSH server software listens for incoming connection requests (typically on TCP port 22). After the client successfully authenticates, the server provides the client access to the host system (running the SSH server software). The client access is governed by the associated user account permissions of the host system. In our case, the Windows computer is the client and the Linux computer is the server/host. In the following procedure, we'll use the (cross-platform) ssh command to access the Linux CLI from the Windows CLI.
You can now quickly and easily access your Linux computer from anywhere in the world (with internet connectivity, that is) using Windows Remote Desktop Connection.
