I have a dedicated server with Linux. I have the IP address and a password for controlling the server. However, I want to control it from a Windows XP or Windows 2008 (server) computer. How can I do that?
Hello, here is a link explaining what you have to do to remotely connect and control your server from XP, VISTA or windows 7:
Here is another option by using Cygwin:
It's unclear what kind of access you have.
Normally, you use the terminal to control a Linux server. You can use an SSH program to access the server's terminal from Windows. Windows doesn't come with an SSH program, so you'll have to download one: I like PuTTY and it's popular: http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/
It's also possible you have VNC access to a graphical environment on the server. If so, you'll need a VNC program. One popular one is TightVNC: http://www.tightvnc.com/
