How do I gain access to my friends PC using his IP address?
If I had my friends IP address can I connect to his PC by creating a java program to control it? By using his IP address connect over the internet to his PC. I can access to his C drive so I can view the file and folder whether he had update in his pc. Any idea?

Which operating systems are involved?
With Windows (and probably other OS) you can't use just an IP address to access someone else's files without them running a suitable service (FTP server, etc) to validate and provide access. With Windows you can use Microsoft's Remote Desktop or remote access software like LogMeIn to access and even take control of another PC (given permission).
The most important single aspect of software development is to be clear about what you are trying to build...
