Remotely controlling Apache server running on Win XP

Hi everyone. I am fairly new to apache and servers in general. I (finally) got my server working yesterday. It is hosted on my own computer at home using port forwarding. I was wondering, if I am not sitting right in front of the server box, is there any way I can, for instance, edit the httpd.conf or index.html?
Is it free?

Note: The server is running Apache 2.2.17 and PHP 5.3 on Windows XP

Assuming that your network is set up to allow shared read/write access to the server config files across your network, then yes, Notepad should be all you need...
