To remotely access a machine you don't have to configure much.

1. Make sure ssh is installed on both machines.
2. Make sure your firewall is not blocking port 22 for those machines.
3. ssh user@ipaddress or ssh user@hostname

Obviously, this is just a basic setup.

Maybe obvious, but you need to have sshd running on the remote machine.
