Manage linux server from your SmartPhone

Today I am going to write something very interesting, Suppose you are enjoying holiday and suddenly one of your visitor call you and inform you that your Database Server is not responding.. You are in hill area and do not have have any cyber cafe around.. hmm?

I tell you the gr88 solution. Download Putty for your smart phone (I have Nokia 5800) and install. Through this application you can execute linux command from your phone console to your server. To use this with your server you must have Static IP of server and SSH access of server.

Note for Indian users: If you are using GPRS Mobile (Internet on mobile) package, then this application may not work. Because operators block all ports other than 80 (http) in case of GPRS Mobile (Internet on mobile) packages. To avoid this you have to activate GPRS Internet on your mobile.

I am using IDEA, GPRS Internet for Rs. 249.00 / month (unlimited download).

let me know if you have any problem 😉

Cheers
