     I used to love free-nx. Unfortunately my understanding is that it 
is pretty much dead. X2go however is very similar and very much alive. 
Pyhoca-gui gives it a pretty useful interface. There is a Windows 
version of phyhoca-gui. I did install the Windows version on one 
occasion in a pinch when my Linux box was not on had and it was 
functional. Just install x2go-server on the server and 
x2go-client/pyhoca-gui on the client. I think it is a little slower then 
free-nx was but is faster then VNC. Plus its encrypted.

VNC will serve the entire remote LAMP server's desktop (assuming you have X11 installed) to your windows desktop and let's you log into the remote machine as if it were your desktop. The other possibility a bit more heavyweight than putty and winscp is to install portions of cygwin, which gives you a native linux-like feel without a virtual machine on your client. The main advantage of cygwin over winscp for example is MUCH higher transfer speeds. Winscp is a dog. The good news is that you have a lot of good options here. -Borries On Tue, Jan 13, 2015 at 11:53:09PM -0600, Alan Lesmerises wrote: I'm in the process of building a LAMP server that will be deployed at a customer's facility, but I'll have to do some remote administration (using SSH) as issues arise.

I wanted to know if any of you have any recommendations in terms of stability, ease of use, etc. I would also welcome any other suggestions you might have regarding remote system administration, such as things that I need be sure to take care of before handing it over to the customer and leaving their site.
