The simplest and most effective way is to just open up SSH, and give him an account.

I don't know what distribution you are on, but first make sure SSH is installed. Check your package manager for openssh. Then you will just want to start the SSH daemon, sshd, and have it start at boot.

You should have a ssh daemon (sshd) running by default. Your friend can remotely login to this using ssh. For example:
Code:
ssh -l foo foo@11.22.33.44
