The simplest solution is via a VNC server and client. I use RealVNC or UltraVNC, but other flavors work just as well.

should i do installation ony mu linux server?
The installation of the server portion should be done on the linux server. Also make sure the port is opened in any firewalls (default port 5900/tcp). Also remember to have a password set - some flavors of VNC install without requiring you to enter a password first.

You can then use the VNC client application on any computer to connect to the server, provide the password, and control it just like you were in front of the keyboard.
