I've used VNC with good results on the server end with Windows machines.
I've used one of the Linux clients to access it without difficulty. I
even use a version on my android phone.
If your server is always changing IPs, that could be a problem. One of
the sites where we used VNC had a cable modem and it has only changed IP
once in about 5 years. It was a pain when it changed though because it
was 250 miles away.
