Debian/Windows remote administration (VNC)

view story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – Hello folks Our office has a debian server, running as a samba PDC. My boss wants to be able to remotely access some administration functions of it, so I'm trying to figure out how to do it. the main remote access device would be his Windows Vista laptop, and possibly also his iPhone. A friend advised me to look at using VNC, and it looks like a suitable program, however the free version only seems to support windows XP and earlier. Does that mean the server only, or both client and server? we have no need to run VNC server on vista. If that won't work, will the java web version do? What (HowTos)
