we have to build something in a CMS. It is hostet on a fedora system. We have connection to that system via putty and via http to the cms.

There are a lot of questions: 1. putty is very restricted. There might be a grafical desktop. How can I determine, what fedora-Version is running? if there is a graphical desktop installed?

If there is one. How can I get access to that graphical desktop via my windows system?

  1. we need to transfer data via ftp from our system to that remote fedora system. So there must be a ftpd on that host. How can I determine, which users are possible? How can I make a new user?

  2. Perhaps there is a IDE installed. How can I see if it is and which one?

I suggest you look at how Fedora infrastructure works. As far as I know, all our infrastructure is hosted on RHEL systems, which includes askfedora, the fedora website, wiki, fedorahosted, bodhi... you name it. The fedora websites work flow should probably be what you're looking for.

I don't know if the servers have graphical desktops installed, but I doubt we have access to them. It isn't required in the defined work flow. I doubt we'd want so many community members using the servers graphical interface and eating computation power needlessly. We do have ssh access (putty is a ssh client). Basically: you develop and make changes on your local system, and only push changes to the main server, like to a git repository.
