The usual way of logging in to a remote server is simply SSH via Putty: http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/ and WinSCP: http://winscp.net/eng/index.php

NX is used if you want a remote desktop connection - which makes things a lot more complicated than simply administering on the command line.

You will then need to install the NX server on the host server (which will emulate a desktop environment which servers usually don't have), and the NX Client on the machine that you use for establishing a connection.

well actually I am trying to remote desktop to linux.

I installed the NX Server in Linux under  /use/NX and installed it correctly.

When I try to connect to linux from my Windows Box, the NX client on windows fails" not sure what this means

NX> 203 NXSSH running with pid: 5704
NX> 285 Enabling check on switch command
NX> 285 Enabling skip of SSH config files
NX> 285 Setting the preferred NX options
NX> 200 Connected to address: <linux IP address> on port: 22
NX> 202 Authenticating user: nx
NX> 208 Using auth method: publickey
/usr/bin/xauth:  creating new authority file /usr/NX/home/nx/.Xauthority
nxserver: error while loading shared libraries: /usr/NX/lib/perl/IO.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
NX> 280 Exiting on signal: 15

Will your db performance match your db growth?

In Percona’s white paper “Performance at Scale: Keeping Your Database on Its Toes,” we take a high-level approach to what you need to think about when planning for database scalability.

Try installing the NX client on the server as well.
In essence, follow the instructions as given here, under "Setup remote desktop through NX": http://www.benmccann.com/dev-blog/opensuse-111-installation-and-setup/

If you wish to login as root via NX, you need to enable this in the server.cfg:

You could also login as normal user and use "sudo" for commands or "su -" for root access.
