If you are an admin on the remote system you can use computer management to connect to the PC within the network and you can enable, disable, uninstall devices.  From computer management highlight 'Computer Management(Local)' then choose Action > Connect to another computer...  type the computer name or ip address and choose OK and you'll have access.  If you are not an admin, you will get the read-only mode.
