I'm a professional sysadmin in the Research Triangle Park area of North Carolina. I've been doing sysadmin work since 1996, I've worked for a smattering of companies including Red Hat, two academic institutions, a regional bank, and now a rail transportation and logistics company.

Then you have some sort of firewall issue going on. But ultimately your problem is networking, not the commands you're trying to use.

comment uninstall mysql in linux server giving error
It didn't - the depsolving yum was trying to do did. That's why rpm -e worked and yum remove didn't.

comment Installing mysql using rpm in linux through commandline
You have to get the local nameserver configuration correct. The wget command you have is correct, it's not working because you have name resolution problems. Fix the nameservers in /etc/resolv.conf.

comment scp using a password on the command line
It's useful. I do recommend trying to get the server to accept an SSH key long-term, but if that's not possible for whatever reason, expect should at least let you hack dirtily around it.

comment Where is the sshd log file on Red Hat Linux stored?
If you're on Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Fedora, or a RHEL derivative like CentOS, then yes, this is a bad sign. Something is wrong.

comment How do I grant privilege for a user to SSH into a Solaris machine?
What appears in the logs? If it thinks you're getting the password wrong, it'll show an "authentication failed" message in your system logs.
