I need some advice on server 2003.  

We have one main site and and a number of home users.  We are setting up a new server and need to run one of our clinet server programs with SQL server.  I am concerned that VPN access tothe program would be too slow and was considering using terminal services.  

Is this the best solution to use and which version of Server 2003 would be most suitable.  Is there an alternative to terminal services?

I'm finding the microsoft sites difficult to get information from and they say I need Windows CALs, Terminal Server CALs and SQL CALs which I would imagine will work out rather expensive.  Is there a better solution?

Thanks,
Donna
