Default How to connect to a Linux machine using VB

Anyone know what component or where to get a tutorial on how to connect to a LINUX machine using a VB app?

I am trying to create a WIN32 Visual Basic application that communicates to a LINUX machine. I will need to read some file info from the LINUX machine and display it in the application. If change is need I will write the change to the file.

Thanks.

How do you want to connect? FTP, SSH, rsync, ...?

Which ever is the easiest way. But I hope SSH is the easiest way because the LINUX box has an SSH server. I heard of a program call putty(plink a command of putty). Wonder if I can use that to open and read/write to a file or do I have to transfer the files over to the local Windows temp folder and do some I/O extraction.

I do not think I can install SAMBA on the LINUX box because its running on a 512mb flash card. Because of the limited space, I do not want to install any more nonessential progs. Just in curiosity, how much space would the SAMBA takes?

I think the best would be to copy over the files to Windows with the scp (secure copy - copy files over SSH) command (I don't know if there's such a command line scp for Windows - maybe you can use WinSCP for it), modify the file and copy it back. But maybe rsync is even easier.
