(You should probably start a new thread for this question. But anyway...)
If you just need a terminal, use SSH (many clients, putty
is a popular one for Windows). You can also use X forwarding if you get an X server, but that won't let you use the "desktop".
If you need a remote "desktop", you should use VNC. Fedora Core comes with RealVNC ("vnc" and "vnc-server" packages), and there are many other VNC implementations also, including TightVNC
. All these implementations are also available for Windows.
There's a new technology called NX, which is like VNC but faster; but I won't get into that now.
