ssh - Secure Shell as a secure replacement for telnet. I use PuTTY as a Windows ssh client.
Create and sign your own client certificates for SSH2/TLS. Anything else is a security risk (openssl).
You can then run X-Windows over a secure link if you must.
Other options include web-based administration using Apache+PHP etc.

The standard tools are SSH, for terminal (installed by default on most distros).

And VNC for remote graphics. For VNC I'd recommend you try out TightVNC, as its much faster than regular vnc. Basically VNC starts up another X server, so don't expect to see what other people are doing on the computer like in windows

To modify VNC's settings simply edit the 'vncserver' program (its actually a script), mine is in /usr/local/bin/.

All of these are ofcourse free

Have fun!

Are you saying that OpenSSL is a security risk?

[cite]ssh: connect to address port 22: No route to host[/cite]

Is running sshd, the ssh server daemon? If is firewalled, is port 22 open?

Check with an nmap:
#nmap localhost
from the server.
