You can use realVNC to access a pc anywhere in the world, all you need is the ip address. And it's free to boot.
Like Vampist said, it gives you control of the pc just as if you were sitting right in front of it, I use it as well to access my server, it's a very handy program to use on something like a server that you just have a computer hooked up with no monitor. You can set the vnc server to start when the pc starts so it'll be on all the time, then on the vnc viewer, all you have to do is select the ip address from a dropdown list (you have ti type them in first) and click "ok" and you're there.
