VNC works well.

I suggest using one of the secure VNC versions like TightVNC.

Check out some of the registry hacks available for VNC on the ORL


If you are doing anything to your server remotely that requires root privileges and you are not using ssh or https or vpn to secure that access, you might as well post the root password on the school bulletin board.

The authors of VNC recommend tunneling it over SSH for security.
