Make sure SSH is installed and started on the server. Then you can use kitty or putty on your Windows box to connect to it:

No. It gives you access to the Linux Terminal, which should be sufficient for a server. What you can do though is to enable X11 forwarding in the /etc/ssh/sshd.conf file. And then on your Windows PC start xming before starting kitty or putty. Then you will be able to start Graphical utilities from the terminal you opened and they will display as windows on your Windows desktop.

When you try to start putty or when you try connecting to the server? Have you installed ssh on the server?

Start the synaptic packagemanager and search for ssh, then select it and install it. Or open a terminal and enter sudo apt-get install ssh.

So SSH is running on the server? To make sure, have you restarted it? Is the server and the Windows 7 PC on the same network segment? Does your Windows firewall allow putty?
