    No, you just install it on Windows. There's already an SSH server on your Ubuntu system, and PuTTY will connect to it. :)

    Hey Guys!!! I think i have a littel problem with the configuration of Putty!!!! I just put my ip address and it gave me an error saying the following:

    Unable to open connection to http
    Host does not exist.

    I think i have done something wrong because i don't know how to configure Putty!!! By the way the computer that is runing ubuntu in which session should it be running, default one or Gnome one,,, Thanks guys

    Your IP does not start with http. I guess you entered something like http://192.168.0.1 instead of 192.168.0.1

    Thats equal. SSH is a server process.

    Then install TightVNC on your ubuntu workstation and the tightvnc client on your windows workstation.
