Installing Resin and JDK on server remotely

I am a newbie. We have a situation after shifting to a new dedicated server.
For our Java web application to run, we have been informed that we need to install JDK and Resin on the server.

a) Is it possible for us to access the server remotely since it is several thousand miles away.
b) Also, How do we go about installing Resin and JDK on the Server.

I tried to search for a similar question but I couldn't find one, and hence I posted.
Any suggestions appreciated. Awaiting Reply.

a) Use ssh to remote login
b) command line fetching binaries + installation
Google for more.

"qweryt" raul, please see your private messages regarding an important administrative matter.

Was a vnc server set up on the remote system? Or does the remote system have remote desktop enabled? I access remote systems all the time and use either VNC or ssh to work with them.

I routinely install and manage Java servers from long distances. I'm in Florida and one of my main production facilities is in Texas. For all I care, it could be in Ulan Bator.

But pay attention to Peter's admonition. I'm a lot more helpful to people who abide by our "rules of the road". We don't have that many of them.

An IDE is no substitute for an Intelligent Developer.
I agree. Here's the link:
