SSH and SSH. First to connect directly to the Server, second to connect to the builtin service processor which manages basic system functions like power, fan speed and a serial console. These onboard service processors or as an extension card often called management cards costs ca 200-300 Euro. Disadvantage is the builtin OS, which often will never be updated. Example for a management card is peppercons eric remote management card. Google will help you to find this. Regards Oli -- gentoo-security@g.o mailing list
