    Just use VNC or something similar. No idea how secure it is however.

    It is possible,but if you would like to use that dedicated server as a proxy,it would be a waste.Plus..connecting via remote will cause you tremendous lag.

    Remotly connections really suck I promise... My friend needed help on his computer and MSN has a feature for this and we did it, and his EXPLORER.exe crashed and he had to turn EXPLORER.exe back up using task manager. It lag badly I promise.

    i think putty does same.... you can login to any linux server from remote and do whatever you have permission to.. and I think even X can be run from remote

    I think it is just a commercialised version of VNC. Or it could be like VNC but uses Java, I don't really know.

    Anyway, VNC is free and works on loads of platforms. I've tried it on 56k, it was slow but it was usable, if you switch many of the options off, like wallpaper etc. If you have a better connection, obvisouly it will be better.

    Oh...simple...all Windows servers do this out of the box. You login via Terminal Services and its as good as being there. Terminal Services are also much much faster than VNC and other slower alternatives.

    So, simply lookup SM or EV1 Windows servers. That's all you need...believe me.

    For window 2000 and 2003, you may use remote desktop connection for remote access.

    I currently use remote desktop to access the labratory computers for work items that require specific software. I am connected via t1, so the experience is absolutely amazing, and I can hardly tell half the time that I am using a computer that is located miles away from my connection. So if you plan on using a remote service, be sure it's on the right OS that you want, and you have a broadband connection to reduce the lag for a better overall experience.
