How can I allow remote access to my computer with just the IP address?

My dad moved overseas and wants to get some of the files from our home computer. Can't I allow him access by just opening some special network and giving him the IP?

    It depends upon the operating system that he has, but, yes you can vnc, rdp or telnet to his ip address.

    I use a program called crossloop to take control (with permission) of remote computers. Both parties have to download the program. The one sharing the computer selects 'share' and a number is displayed. This number is required by the computer taking control. The number changes each time the program is used.

    If you use this program, you don't need to register.

    Source(s): I work in computer support and this is just one of the remote control tools that I can use.
