    well if you have X running on the server, then you could VNC, but X is such a nono on servers i doubt it, with the exception of shh style tools and top/ps i cant think of anything.

    Probably your best bet is like qub333 mentioned, try connecting via SSH. That's what we did at my college. Over a fast network connection you won't notice any difference in responsiveness than if you were actually sitting at the server.. Of course, that's provided your server ALLOWS ssh connections...
