When you’re editing an ABAP Program you can view the version management tool by following menu path.

Utilities-> Versions -> Version Management.


To start Remote Comparison Tool ,click REMOTE COMPARISON on the toolbar, you’ll see two options to define a remote SAP System, If the SAP System you want to compare is configured in the transport management system, you can select the SAP System directly, Otherwise you have to create a RFC Destination for remote system.
