i have a newly acquired dell poweredge 1900.  i want to put it in the closet and i need to make it headless thru the LAN.  i want something to access it.  i have tried "team viewer", i have tried "remmina", pUTTY and even SPICE.  they are not too friendly.  i have stupid people in my house and want a totally easy GUI.  what do you suggest?  thanks...

thanks for your help.  everything is working great.  i put the server out in the garage where it is colder than hell for now.  headless and using RDP that comes with windows.  we use REMMINA with ubuntu and all is good.  i can do everything that i want to because the desktop comes up and it is just like being there.  i made the server that is running windows 7 static 192.168.1.124 because my web server is 123.  it is quicker to connect then instead of a workgroup name.  we can serve up movies thru the our ROKU using the app that comes with ROKU.  thanks again...
