You can only have 1 connection using Windows XP as a VPN server and the same for remote desktop. Even if you use XP as a web server the maximum connections you could have to it would be 10 concurrent connections. That's the limlt set by Microsoft.

I'd suggest you'd look at get a copy of Windows 2000 or 2003 server standard. Bothe have a built in VPN server which will take up to 256 concurrent connections. This is a much better solution for what you are suggesting.

This is how you set up a VPN server on Windows 2000 Server:

This would allow users to access, via a VPN from each of their machines, your machine with the app running on it.

Depending on the app and if it was written for multiple users your best bet might be terminal services http://www.microsoft.com/windows2000/technologies/terminal/default.asp

If you want to do it right (as opposed to cheap) take a look at:
