No GUI is needed on the server. One only needs to make sure that 
virt-viewer can be used (which happens if your remote workstation has an 
X server + you install xorg-x11-xauth on the the server running Xen. ssh 
X forwarding takes care of the rest).
And as an alternative option one can start vncviewer on the workstation 
and connect to the "correct" port of the Xen server. Only problem in 
this case is that you must manually identify the said port. But once 
again, no rocket science, just a bit of of comprehending the process.
