Default Logging on to an ubuntu server

I am rather new to the Linux world but have assisted in the installation of a new Ubuntu Linux server, replacing our old AIX server.

I am an old vet at Windows but have a new Ubuntu box I am working with.

If I convert a Windows box, to a Ubuntu box at the server location, how do I access the server using the Ubuntu GUI ?

Is there a utility similar to PUTTY to interface with the server programs?

Thanks

You can use PuTTY to log in to your Ubuntu server via SSH.

PuTTY is a Windows program.

On Ubuntu's Gnome desktop, you can start a normal shell instead to get access to the command line.
