Allowing Remotes to access lan via internet

Hi  I was wondering if you guys could help me out.  I'm looking for some advise.  

How would i go about setting up a connection via the internet to our LAN.  That will enable users to access their email and telnet to a unix server?  We run a windows network with WIndows NT server.  At present users use dial up to access the LAN remotely.  Although as demand grows for this the more poeple ae finding the line engaged.  

So my question to you guys is point me in the right direction to start on this project.  Thanks Guys.

Have you looked at www.gotomypc.com? It should work for your needs, although there is a cost involved.
