use ssh

for windows clients use putty

ssh on RedHat should already be up and running if you installed it.

remotely from where and thru what? Meaning, are you trying to dial in? Are you trying to connect across a lan? SSH is the way to go for most things however you may need to do some config'ing if you are trying to access the box from dialing in and thru a hardware/software firewall.

yes, this is true but with respect to ftp the connection is assumed to be already established.

Well, if you want to be able to access your graphical environment (KDE/GNOME/Fluxbox etc) over the network, take a look at one of the VNC clients/servers out there. There's tightvnc, realvnc, winvnc and probably a whole lot more too.

more to be found. you can also tunnel this over ssh for added security.
