My colleague installed Magento in xampp on his system and I can browse the site frontend and backend on my system using his system IP.

Is it possible to develop and run commands in my system though he installed the Magento on his system?

Could anyone please guide me?

If you can able to browse frontend by system IP(host) you can definitely connect by SSH.

Go to the terminal and try below commands

ssh username@host

When it prompts for password add the password and you can able to connect.
