Either get a shell account or install a Linux or BSD system. There are even Live CDs that will allow you to run Linux without affecting your current Windows installation.

That's a good one. But, there are web sites that allow us to run Unix commands without loading any thing in your system at all . Any idea about it?

My first suggestion was to get a shell account. So, there you go. Google around and you'll find several.

depends exactly what you're trying to do. the shell account idea is a good one.

maybe you could explain what you want to "run unix commands" for?

I just want to know how to open a shell account. Is there any website where I can remote login and execute unix commands and see the outuput. Just I don't have a Unix system and would like to work Unix from windows. Sorry for the late reply.

Cygwin -- as mentioned -- is really the only choice, though I would not exactly classify it as a "fully functional Unix environment"; it comes close.

Another option (as you don't have a second PC) is to install VMWare; create a virtual machine instance and load Unix onto that.

I know of no "website" which makes use of an interface to CLI command structure, and the number of hosts offering free CLI access to their systems is dwindling.

You can also download Knoppix (or other Live Linux CDs) - just pop them in your CD drive, boot up, and you'll have a linux environment to play around with!

Those sites are really helpful. But I could I not understand their language. It all looks blab to me.

What is it exactly you are trying to do apart from just typing commands?

like what was said, get a shell.
Its a user account on a unix machine.

telnet (or Putty for ssh) to the shell, login, and type stuff.
