Are you saying you want a gui desktop to be remotely available?
ssh is always your friend, but if you want a gui (assuming Xwindows?) you
could ssh in and then port-forward X11 and have your gui. Other than that,
there are some IP based KVM switches but they aint cheap.

If we are talking about a MS Windows server.... neverming, lets not talk
about MSWindows.
