For remote connection you need internet (secure/ non-secure) either through wire or wireless.

    The question was not clear, and that's why you got an answer you think is wrong. If you don't have any kind of network connection, then what you are asking is simply not possible. If you have internet access, then you do have a network connection (as opposed to what you stated in your question).

    You could do a couple things to monitor a system that doesn't have network connections. First is you could sit at the keyboard/monitor or for a more remote solution, you could use a network attached kvm that has remote capabilities over a network and there are some serial/ ip devices that you could connect to serial port on server for a tty session that could be reached thru the network. Non of these would require that the server be connected to an Ethernet LAN. As far as that goes you could even connect up to serial thru a modem.

    IN WINDOWS IF I WANT TO CONNECT MY HOME COMPUTER FROM MY WORK IT IS POSSIBLE THRU A SOFTWARE "TEAMVIEWER" THE ONLY CONDITION IS THAT MUST HAVE INTERNET CONNECTION AND NO LAN OR WAN OR ANY KIND OF NET CONNECTIVITY IS REQUIRED. BUT HOW DOES IT POSSIBLE TO CONNECT A FAR AWAY COMPUTER FROM MY WORK WHILE NO LAN OR ANY KIND OF NET CONNECTION, ONLY HAS AN INTERNET CONNECTION VIA DATACARD (i.e. TATA INTERNET STICK).

    If the server has no Internet connection, then you’d need to use a modem to connect to it. If you can live with a character-based terminal session, then you can just connect a modem to a serial port (internal or external) and run getty on it in /etc/inittab like we did in the old days. You can also redirect the console to a serial port and thus to the modem. See this article for some ideas. If you need a network connection between the two machines, you can set up a SLIP or PPP server on the remote machine and use a modem on your client to connect to it via SLIP or PPP by dialing out on the modem, like we use to connect to ISP’s in the days before broadband. You really don’t need DNS, since the PPP server would have the same address every time (on an RFC 1918 private network) and you could put it in the client’s /etc/hosts. I recall that I had this scripted on a Linux system some years ago so that whenever I referred to an address not on my LAN, the modem would automatically dial up to the ISP and connect me to the Internet. This would be the same idea, except that when you referred to the remote server’s address, the modem would connect you to it via PPP on the two modems. I don’t recall the details of the scripts, as this was probably 10 years ago, but it can be done. Search for “SUSE PPP server” for some ideas on the server side and “SUSE ppp dialup script” for ideas on the client side. I will say this is a really crappy way to support anything. Maybe you could get a dialup account for the server so that it had some kind of Internet connectivity and use a service like http://getmyip.com to record the server’s dynamically assigned IP address in DNS there so that you can find the server from the client side. Anyway, it can be done, but it isn’t simple and it’s 1990’s technology.
