Creating a visual remote desktop from window to linux.

Hello I got an Arch Server up and running sshd. I don't have screen for this PC (neither keyboard or mouse), so I would like to know is there a way to setup all the needed components from ssh to make my server also as remote desktop (so I could connect from my win machine and see graphical interface and not accessing it only via ssh)?
Thanks a lot!

Re: Creating a visual remote desktop from window to linux.

have a look at X forwarding, you essentially log on to X remotely through SSH.

There is a somewhat automated version of setting this up though the use of freenx:

Note that it is possible to set this up without the use of third party software.

I used to use Xming on Windows. It was ok.

Freenx is nice, possibly slightly more complicated to set up but works well when you get it sorted.  I would also look up VNC in the wiki, its super easy to set up and you can use it standalone or tunnel it over ssh which is best if you ever want to access your box from outside of your lan.
