3.5 .net remote access to a computer

I have a second network that is isolated from our main building.
I want to be able to write a vb.net program that once an hour will "Call home"" to see if we need to connect to that pc to make any changes..

Is this way to out there for the language?
Is there already a program that will do this..??
I can't get to the computer remote desktop it, that is why it has to "Phone home".
Who is Participating?
You can use Skype API to send messages or make calls from Skype to Skype.
Still around?

Is this possible??
If there is no VPN then i assume you have static IP on that PC. You can develop an app which could use sockets to communicate with the server.
