I was assigned a CentOS VM that I manipulate through Putty. Everything I do to it is by command line so far, and I have admin rights to it. The VM is stored in the corporate data center served up by VMWare. There is no desktop environment installed at all.
My question: can I run a graphical environment remotely on my local machine (currently Windows 7) to configure and interact with this virtual server? If yes, what do I do to set it up?
I realize that "real" admins use command prompt all the time, but that's not my primary job. I'm just trying to make things a little easier for myself.
