I have a client that needs to have business at 2 diffrent locations.  At location A is the main office 25 users. This is where the server is. At location B there is about 5 users that is has to access an accounting program that is at the server in location A.
The server at location A is going to be set up as a terminal server.

The users at location B is going to use remote desktop to access the server.

At location A there is a PIX 506E device and at location B there is a PIX 501.

What is the best solution here? Set up permanent Site to Site VPN solution?  If i set it up like that will the pix
make the connection so that it is seamless for the user? Or  will they have to use the vpn client ?

Or should we set up a remote access vpn soulution ?

Thanks so much for all the great help that you folks at EE provide.

www links would be great too ..

You already have all the pieces of the puzzle.
Setup a site-site permanant VPN. The VPN Wizard makes this a piece of cake.
Invisible to the clients, no software on their part.
Done.

You make it sound so easy :-)  So we do not need the vpn client software? Do you have any www links for that imp?

No client software.
Here's a step-by-step guide (using command line, not the wizard)

Does both sites need to have a fixed ip adress?
