The second option is to use by the help of VNC but for VNC you have to make sure your server support VNC by default servers are not able to use VNC unless configured properly except for some VPS providers who don't SHH by default they provide VNC instead of SSH. To connect by VNC download and install any VNC client like realVNC and connect using the details provided in application thread(or if you setup these by yourself).
