Linux remote client to Windows XP

I have a unique piece of hardware plugged into a Windows machine. I want to access this piece of hardware (and associated software) from two machines at once. One of these machines will obviously be the Windows machine that the hardware is in, but I would like to be able to connect to the Windows machine with a Linux machine, and access the hardware/software simultaneously. (ie: Windows machine running normally. Linux machine, logged onto and running programs on the Windows machine) Is this possible, and if so, how could I accomplish it?

I've not tried to do this with the server running on Windows, but have you tried VNC ? That might work.
