Why not? What can you install, if anything?
I personally have my parents SSH into my box using Putty (because their ISP
does not allow incoming TCP connections to be established) and tunnel VNC
through that so I can administer their poor Windows computers 13,450 km away
and put more free software on them. The compression of SSH is even said to
make this faster than unencrypted VNC.
It's not quite clear from your question what you wish to do and what your
constraints are, but putty, tunnel, and vnc would be good things to feed
