We have vivado installed on a server, but I would like to use it to program a bit file on a FPGA which is located localy at my desk. Is it possible and how do I do it ? I am new to this so any detailed instruction would help. Thanks.

The program you are after is called "vcse_server" and is part of the Vivado installation. You will have to install at least a minimal version of the tools on your desktop machine that has the JTAG<->USB Cable connected.
Once you are running vcse_server on your desktop machine (it is a console program) you can point your server at it from the 'Hardware Manager' and talk to your FPGA as if it was locally connected to the server machine.

A nice tutorial: http://www.xilinx.com/support/documentation/sw_manuals/xilinx2014_1/ug936-vivado-tutorial-programming-debugging.pdf (page no. 57)

Thanks for your help. "vcse_server" & "hardware Manager" is the solution I was looking for.

I have the same problem, but my local machine is a macbook. Is there any solution to use FPGA on local macbook to connect to remote vivado?
I referenced the following video/doc:
It seems we need hw_server or cse_server, but I don't know if there is such software for macbook?
