Rendering across a network

Hi guys

If I want to set up my .blend files on my laptop and then send the .blend across the internet (wifi/ cloud) to a desktop for rendering how difficult is this to set up? It’s not quite the same thing as setting up a render farm. Could it be as simple as using Teamviewer to remotely access the desktop and then running the .blend file? Although there is probably a more elegant way I’m sure…

Thanks
