If you want to connect from windows then you need "exceed" from hummingbird. You would need to enable XDMCP on the X server.. /etc/X11/gdm/gdm.conf for GDM.

VNC would be the weapon of choice. Here's a brief introduction to different VNC-software: http://www.nyu.edu/its/humanities/docs/vnc.html

Of course, you need to install the vnc-server software somehow, but that can be done via ssh (without monitor, keyboard and mouse).
