how to contact a fedora system from a windows system?


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?
