well depends on how?

real VNC is a good remote desktop client, but you will need a network for this and if you want to go outside will have to be wireless, so to do it over the net like from an office etc.. try anyplace control

i just googled VNC and i have seen that there is a new type and its described to do exactly what you want and free..not sure if its any good give it a try

other wise:
