I have a headless server (with a desktop (ubuntu 10.04)) that I VNC into (using RealVNC) whenever I want to do anything with it. However, VNC-ing does not seem reliable. Every week I have a connect a monitor because something went wrong and the server shut out the rest of the network. So how do you admin a headless server?
NOTE: I wasn't sure if this should be CW or not so if you think so please comment.
