get apple remote desktop and you will not need a server to log in. it allows complete control of the client computer. you can totally control the other mac and even install software on it from your mac. i cant say enough of how amazing this is.

i have 2 macs running it in my house and i have the admin on my traveling macbook. if you install something like no-ip which the free version is all you need then you can easily log into their site and get the client macs ip address even if it happened to change. i also love that software.

you can then do anything on any of your macs from anywhere.

hope that helps

also check out the apple remote desktop set up video to see an example of some of what it can do.
