I have a dell server and I am trying to configure it for the first time. It is running windows server 2003. I do not have a monitor screen. Can I use laptop screen to display dell server and set it up?

I mean to say is, if I can display dell server on laptop screen, it would be great. I am trying that with a dell laptop but not getting the display.

That is a Video Out on the laptop, not an input. – Moab Dec 25 '10 at 22:04
Moab, not getting your point here. – hari Dec 26 '10 at 2:55

If you have Remote Desktop or VNC running on the server, you can use that. There is no (realistic) way to connect the laptop display directly to the server.

Unless the laptop has video capture, and the server has something like an s-video out. But it doesn't.
