I used Fedora Core 15 as my server & used both Linux or Windows clients to remotely connect then used X over SSH or CLI. On my Windows 7 64-bit client I use:

  • PuTTY (putty.exe)
  • mRemoteNG is an open source, tabbed, multi-protocol, remote connections manager. mRemoteNG allows you to view all of your remote connections in a simple yet powerful tabbed interface.
  • HeidiSQL a lightweight interface to MySQL (+MS SQL)
  • XMLPad 3 is a freeware XML & DTD editor plus more.


My Fedora Core 15 had xmllint installed. To confirm you have the software installed:

[ptay@robot logs]$ xmllint --version
xmllint: using libxml version 20707
   compiled with: Threads Tree Output Push Reader Patterns Writer SAXv1 FTP HTTP DTDValid HTML Legacy
   C14N Catalog XPath XPointer XInclude Iconv ISO8859X Unicode Regexps Automata Expr Schemas Schematron
   Modules Debug Zlib 
[ptay@robot logs]$


Download Kernow

[ptay@robot Kernow]$ wget

Unzip Kernow file

[ptay@robot Downloads]$ unzip "Kernow" 
Archive:  Kernow
   creating: Kernow 1.7.2

   //////////////omitting text/////////////////////

  inflating: Kernow 1.7.2/readme.txt

Optional, remove .zip file by using rm -f "Kernow" command.

Launch Kernow

Navigate to directory where Kernow is located (or create symbolic link and use symbolic link). This command will launch a Kernow java window.

[ptay@robot Downloads]$ cd Kernow1.7.2/
[ptay@robot Kernow1.7.2]$ ls
ant    extensions  Kernow.exe  readme.txt
cache  Kernow.bat  kernow.jar  lib
[ptay@robot Kernow1.7.2]$ java -jar kernow.jar &
[1] 3370
[ptay@robot Kernow1.7.2]$


Ubuntu commands:

$ sudo apt-get install mysql-server mysql-common mysql-client

Fedora Core 15 commands:

[ptay@robot logs]$ sudo yum groupinstall "MySQL Database"
[sudo] password for ptay:

Enable MySQL at specific run levels

Note: I did 3 & 5

[ptay@robot logs]$ sudo chkconfig --level 35 mysqld on
[ptay@robot logs]$ chkconfig --list | grep -i mysqld
mysqld          0:off   1:off   2:off   3:on    4:off   5:on    6:off

Start MySQL daemon (mysqld)

As root

[root@robot ~]# service mysqld restart
Stopping mysqld:  [  OK  ]
Initializing MySQL database:  Installing MySQL system tables...

//////////////omitting text/////////////////////

Starting mysqld:  [  OK  ]

Run MySQL secure installation script

As root

[root@robot ~]# /usr/bin/mysql_secure_installation

//////////////omitting text/////////////////////

Set root password? [Y/n] y
Remove anonymous users? [Y/n] y
Disallow root login remotely? [Y/n] y
Remove test database and access to it? [Y/n] y
Reload privilege tables now? [Y/n] y
Cleaning up...

All done!  If you've completed all of the above steps, your MySQL
installation should now be secure.

Thanks for using MySQL!

Test MySQL

As any user

[root@robot ~]# mysql -u root -p

Set up MySQL for remote access

Update firwall

I configured MySQL server to accept TCP connections (unsecure) on my local area network & use SSH for remote connections.
