Since it sounds like you want your programmer to have a direct connection the the system you may want to set up a PPP server on the system. That's covered in Chapter 28 of the PPP HowTo (http://www.redhat.com/mirrors/LDP/HOWTO/PPP-HOWTO/ppp-server.html). Another option is to install Kermit on the server and client and use that for Up/Dwnloads.

to monitor: install Nagios on the machine and configure it to send emails/SMS/wotever to the admin whenever a problem arises

to update: set up a PPP connection with callback (security). the developer will log in, be called back, stop the services, use "rsync" then restart the updated services
