Hello

I haven't used it myself but there's 'Remote Incident Manager' (RIM),
which will make accessible connections to a remote PC.

I understand there are two components, the server component which runs
on the machine you want to connect to and support, that is free, and the
client portion, which runs on the supporters machine costs money.
