If you allow inbound ssh over the internet to your server, there are
a number of cell phones/pda's that will let you connect from literally
anywhere.   I use a Sprint treo600 with a free third party ssh
program.  It is painful to type on the tiny keyboard but it sometimes
beats driving twenty miles to fix something.  There is also a PPTP
VPN client (not free) and a VNC client (free, but I need the VPN to
reach my machines so I don't use it).
