Tightvnc is similar to PC Anywhere in that it will let you see and manipulate 
the server's window as if you were at the server.   It is different from PC 
Anywhere in that it is free.  Tightvnc is available for Unix and Windows; so 
you can use it to manage your FreeBSD server from your Windows PC.

On the FreeBSD server, install tightvnc from the ports:

On the PC, install tightvnc.  You can find tightvnc packages for Windows by 
searching via google.

If the network connection between the server and PC is not protected, you 
should probably run tightvnc through ssh on FreeBSD and through putty on 

Best of luck,
