No, they are not. Remote access is not a product, it simply is what it says it is: access from a remote location. This can be using SSH, VNC, but also via Remote Desktop for example. Remote Desktop is a technology by Microsoft which allows you to connect to a remote computer. Keep in mind that the remote computer cannot be running a Home edition of Windows, as Home editions do not support connecting to via Remote Desktop.
