Noob question - How do you access the shell. I found the wiki article on creating a user with shell privileges but I can’t figure out how to actual get to the shell. I can get to net2ftp but I need to upload files bigger than 7mb and it seems that the shell is the best way to do this. Thanks!
The best way to upload files larger than 7MB would be to use an actual FTP Client. (Such as can be found at http://filezilla.sourceforge.net/ ).
If you want to utilize shell access, you need to use either telnet, or an SSH client (Such as can be found at http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/download.html ).
Thanks! That was exactly what I needed to know.
