i recieved my login info for a dedicated server saturday and ive acccomplished nothing in 3 days.
i am using putty/ssh to try and login
i enter the ip given into putty then a black box appears asking for the name
i insert root then it asks for pw
i enter the root pw given to me and then all i see is the black screen with a flashing #
i take it some form of command goes next.
i guess i was thinking it would be similar to windows server 2003 after logging in being taken right to the desktop/icons so i guess this is going to be alot different.
looking for someone who may be interested in installing/setting up a few things on the server and writing out the steps on how i accomplish loggging in and using whats installed...
i would like bittorent/bt client(bitcomet)?/some form of browser to surf the net (firefox)?
and how to change the root pw.
