Yes, the prefered method is to use ssh. You will need to setup sshd on the PC you desire to log into.

Is this PC behind a router?

If youa re on the same LAN, and both computers use gdm to handle logins,you can use a feature of gdm to perform remote grapgical logins which is quite cool. It's called XDCMP or someting similar.
