I have two computers, I want to work with them independently. At same time I should get some control of one system from another with the permission of partner. I know that I can use TeamViewer but I don't want to use that . I would appreciate it if you could let me suggest some method to solve my problem.

If you're going to exclude tools such as TeamViewer (and LogMeIn, GoToMeeting, Helpouts etc.) and assuming these two computers are not on the same network you're going to need to set up a VPN and use remote desktop. Would you mind telling me why you don't want to use TeamViewer? Is it JUST TeamViewer you have a problem with or all such tools (e.g. LogMeIn, etc.)?

Thank you very much for your reply. I will go for VPN setup. My internet connection is very slow, that is why I am not interested in TeamViewer. Can I setup TeamViewer by means of LAN cable or some other wired connection ?

Are these two local computers, that is, computers on the same network, either connected wired or wireless through a router/switch or wired together with a single crossover cable (no router or switch)?

If so, you might be able to skip VPN all together and just use Remote Desktop. You'd need a Professional version of Windows though (Home Basic editions don't include it).
