For a server, I'd have to disagree. I think for a server environment it's less likely they will even have X installed, much less need it to administer their system. I'd vote for ssh

I second MasterC with ssh. It is a huge waste of resources running X on most servers. However if you want the equivilant to PCAnywhere then you'll need VNC (use tight vnc - it offers better compression) If you are administering from linux then you could use xforwarding.
