The easiest thing I can suggest is to use LogMeIn (http://www.logmein.com)
The free service should let him do what he needs to do and couldn't be any easier to setup.

There are, of course, other solutions including other services or simply setting up Remote Desktop access, but if you want quick, easy, and secure, that's it.

I agree, use LogMeIn.com, it'll solve the problem with minimal headache. No firewall configuration, no routing, no IP addresses, no actual "understanding" of networking concepts needed at all. It's free.

The only other alternative I might suggest is Teamviewer:

If its connected directly to the internet put a remote desktop shortcut on his desktop at home. Or set up a Real VNC for him. Password protected naturally.
