You don't need to jailbreak to use RDP (remote desktop protocal) apps. Things you do need to do are as follows:
1. Setup portforwarding on your router. 3389 is the default port for RDP.
2. Make sure remote desktop feature is turned on in the computer you want to remote into. Right-click My Computer and select the Remote tab to confirm that it is on.
3. Make sure your computer's login has a password. If your windows account doesn't have a password, RDP will fail to connect.

There are many RDP clients in the AppStore but the only one I use is by MochaSoft. The app is very easy to setup and use on the iPhone. As far as understanding your router and port forwarding, let's just say that "easy" is a relative term. If you don't have any experience with port forwarding, you'll need to google a little to overcome the rather small learning curve. Some routers are easier to setup than others but they are all basically the same.

Not only do I use Logmein Ignition on my iPhone, I use it to network all the computers on my home LAN. I am using right now to write this post.

Logmein setup is almost completely transparent.
Depending upon one's hourly rate, one can easily save the cost of the Ignition client on setup alone.
That said, I agree with the writer who said that he had not tried it because of the cost. $20- is a lot to pay for a trial. On the other hand, if you are sure that you want to do remote access, this is the easiest, cheapest, and lowest risk solution.Thanks for ending the exclusivity, Steve. it is about time.

LogMeIn Ignition now has Universal Binary to support iPad/iPhone/iPod Touch platforms. Price remains the same. I think it just moved to the head of my race due to the fact LMI just works for me...
