Do you have the correct memory etc?

If the server has RSA or imm can you connect using that?

(Are you sure you bought a working server -have you seen it working?)

RSA is remote supervisor adapter.
Imm is insight management module (or something like that)
They are ways to use your computer from another machine via a web browser, giving a virtual keyboard and mouse as well as access to some information on hardware state etc...

I assume the machine has onboard graphics?
