So, wait, she's going to turn on remote access and give you the IP of the computer? There shouldn't be any difficulties at all, then (assuming you're talking about Windows Remote Desktop, or something similar).

If this is on a local network, there should be no problems.

If this is over the internet it is possible that her router's firewall will not have the correct ports forwarded to her computer. It is also possible if your friend is not very tech savy that she will give you her local address rather than her external address. (her external address may change if she restarts her router, unless she has a static IP)
