Hello,
I am a new Linux user. I installed RedHat Enterprise Linux 8.2 on my PC. I created a user account for example "USER1". My question is, how do I give my USER1 access to the PC so the USER1 can log in remotely? The target is as root I will install a software and the USER1 can also use the software in parallel with me but he will log into PC as USER1.

As root, I can log in remotely to the PC with no issue. I followed the procedure mentioned here https://access.redhat.com/documenta.../html/system_administrators_guide/ch-tigervnc. My problem is I am not clear how my USER1 can log in to the PC at the same time I am also working in the same PC as root/a user.

Thanks for your help.

Assuming you want each user to have their own home folders, create the user first, then either use RDP or VNC if they need a graphical desktop or if they only need access to files and a CLI interface use SSH and SCP instead. Both of these are probably installed in your distribution already. Their help pages explain how to connect and transfer files between systems.

If your other user is remote over the internet, you might have to use port forwarding or even DDNS for them to connect from a different ISP.
