Connecting Via RedHat Server

I recently just set up a spare computer as a RedHat 7.3 server and need to know how I can connect to the server using a local network (?) and my Windows XP computer.

I only have one connection so I would like to be able to get the network configured so that I could do my coding work and such on this computer (the RH Server), but I have no idea how to connect to it via the net.

Could someone help me with this? I am new to setting up and running a home server and net the RH server to connect to the net somehow.

Please advise and help -- any help is much appreciated!

I really am having a hard time understanding what you are talking about. Could you give more details as to what it is that you want? Remote access to a linux machine can be done over telnet, ssh or vnc. You said that this was on a local network(with a question mark), but you also mentioned connecting to it over the net. Explain the network setup some more and we will try to help you. It's hard to tell what you are asking. Do you need help connecting the RH server to the internet, do you need help with internet connection sharing?

You could always run a ssh daemon to connect from other machines to your box. It should be as simple as entering on your RH as root:
service sshd start
then, if you want to connect from another pc to your RH server:
-(from *NIX) ssh <your_ip>
-(from windoze): you'll have to download PuTTY
