Call from somewhere else is somewhat unspecific. Anyway, there are
- Work using a Remote Desktop Connection (as I do for maintaining the
CRAN windows builder, for example).
- Install some secure shell server and work command line based.
- Install some framework that allows to start processes on that machine
as a node in a computer cluster (such as mpi) - this is not that easy on
Windows and you always need a lucky combination of libraries (mpi/Rmpi
and so on) that work together.
