how to install virtual machine remotely in centOS?


We got a dedicated server. The only way to access this is remotely (ssh). We want to install a virtual machine on it (win server 2003). How/using what, can we do this remotely? I was looking around with no success...thanks...

Since I have only used VMware, I dont think you can do it without GUI.
If it is a dedicated server why not setup VNC and then take it from there?

Good Q.

Which flavor of VNC (Open, Tight, Real, etc.) would folks recommend?

(Displaying my ignorance) how secure are they? -- Do they need to be run over a VPN? What would that do to speed & responsiveness?

Yeah, if you havent installed things like gnome/kde etc. On a default install this should be available.

I have only used Tight, but I dont think there is much of a difference except the cost Yeah, that reminds me...I believe the paid versions come up with some sort of encryption or as always you could use SSH tunneling with the free versions.

Well...how slow will it get? Thats up with your bandwidth and connectivity.
