Dedispec will tell you what access methods are available --
commonly, a Java program, or a web service, or VNC.

Their website says "temporary kvm over IP", which suggests that
they will come and plug in a networked device that will talk to
your server's VGA, USB and PS/2 ports. The client end of that
could be any of the above methods -- ask them.

Thank you. I'm aware of KVM devices, but wasn't sure about my end of the connection, so your explanation helps a lot.

But they are very cryptic in their typical responses and it is a slooow communication process leaving a lot to guess work. Hopefully all will end well.
