terminal service will allow you to actually log in on ur machine or the server directly (if u install on ur office machine or server respectively)

vpn or TS, choice will depend on the network administrator for ur network and also on your existing infrastructure.
terminal service will b simpler to install but will require more money in terms of licensing.
