For instance...After installing your new Linux OS on your new unmanaged VPS - say with Linode, Slicehost or others, how do you access it? If you're using Windows locally, and want to connect remotely, here's how.

This is Part 2 of a wider series, "How to Set Up an Unmanaged Virtual Private Server (VPS)."

Ideal for blog and site owners that have outgrown shared hosting but can't, or don't want, to afford a managed VPS, this series of blog posts and videos takes a blank VPS, building it into a supercharged server, capable of hosting multi-sites, email and more.

Why do it? 'Cos it's easy to do and, for a typical hosting fee of about $20 a month, you can have a solution powerful enough for most sites, and even start your very own hosting company or co-op!
