VNC is da bomb. I administer UNIX servers from a Windblows workstation using the same GUI as I use when at
the server. Saves me from being locked in the server room all day. Check out Real VNC, Tight VNC, Tridia VNC, Ultr@ VNC; all are freeware and maintained by open source crowd. You can even run ‘em thru SSH if you need to.

Believe it or don’t, I also have VNC on my PDA, allowing me to do limited server maintenance wirelessly while stuck in some pointless meeting or other. Is that geek chic or what?
