I'm not entirely sure what your asking for, but on my servers I use a
(an) ssh connection, it gets me in, and anything I need done on a
server, I can do from the console.  I'm not sure if this is what your
looking for, but I HAVE to run windows on my personal workstation at
work because of the devices connected to it(industrial machines).  I
have the server run linux and I use putty to ssh in when I need to. 
(which isnt often mind you)

Not sure if thats what your asking,
Matt
