Have you considered a site-to-site VPN? SonicWall and Netgear devices are a good solution for this situation. And to make it a little easier on yourself, make sure you have static WAN IPs at both sites.

vpn is a good solution but requires hw.--if you just want to be able to do file transfer or other manipulation directly on teh computer you could use pca or other software to connect.

VPN Tunnel is the best, most secure solution.  I work in a hospital and we have 20+ people connected through VPN tunnels.  We use Linksys Routers.  here is a link at newegg.  They are really easy to set up too.
