The simplest approach would be to use VNC Personal Edition (USD30, from
http://www.realvnc.com/products/personal) at both ends (for encryption) and
then to use a dynamic DNS service, such as no-ip.com, to assign a permanent
friendly name to her computer - they provide an application that then keeps
that name up to date with the current IP address of the machine.
