I have found that the software HamachiX, which is free VPN software & SpyMe is a great way to have access to files & control of a remote computer.

 

HamachiX is a GUI interface for Hamachi which currently only has Windows & Linux client.

You can start the clients on both machines & login in to your own private VPN. The macs then find each other on the network, so its like they are on the same local network in the same room.

 

From there any VNC or SpyMe screen control program can then be used to control the remote mac.

 

Here are the software links:

I think SpyMe is OSX only.

 

Your best bet is to install a VNC server on the PC.

Then use, as Adam advised, Chicken of the VNC to control the PC.

 

If your PC is not on the same network, (ie at work), you still could install & run Hamachi on the PC to take care of the VPN. This way you can use the unsecure VNC protocol over the secure Hamachi VPN connection.

 

Hope this helps.
