Remote desktop control somehow?

Question by Platonic Mage: Remote desktop control somehow?
My boss is in Brazil, and he has a laptop I need to access. He gave me his IP, from going to whatismyip.com, but I’m unable to connect using Remote Desktop Connection. It should be set up to allow it. Is there any free online service that’s easy to set up? He doesn’t know anything, and I can’t walk him through difficult tasks. So, it would be best if I could just send him a link that will give me control of his computer.
