does the remote pc run linux? if yes & it is connected to any network which u r connected to, type

telnet <<ip-address>>


u need to know the IP address of the remote machine before hand. on the remote machine type ifconfig u will get to know its IP address

use ftp command with the same Ip address to send & recieve files from the remote machine.

You may be better off installing and using ssh.

Telnet send all data (Including Passwords) in plain text. Ssh encrypts all data.

Well if you know the ip and the machine is running telent or netcat then thats all you need.
As stated before telnet is very insecure and you should very much shh look into ssh.

Use SSH

Download putty to use as a client on your windows machine. http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/
use scp or sftp (part of ssh and putty ) to securely transfer files between the machines.

Telnet is very insecure avoid using it if you can.
