I am setting up a new office and what the customer wants is to have these system remotly connected to the main office they already have a couple other offices that do this. The person who orgianally did this is no longer with them. I dont need to create any new users (yet) i just need to know how i need to configure the xp pro systems and the router at the new office to be able to connect to the server (2003 server). the cust will have a DSL connection.

You need to configure a VPN to main site.

You need to contact some IT guy from Main site, ask him how they connects to other remote sites.(They will have some kind of VPN server/firewall/router).

Then you can connect your site to main site using a VPN capable router/firewall.

it depends on what you mean by "connect".  VPN is one way to get a "connection".  with vpn, file sharing, etc will be possible

but if the users at a remote site just need to get access to the server at the main site, you could use Remote Desktop Connection.  the firewall/router at the main site would need to have port forwarding enabled such that remote desktop connections are forwarded to the appropriate server (the terminal server).  no configuration is necessary at the remote site's firewall/router.  they would just launch remote desktop and use the external IP of the main site.

Terminal Services is your best bet. Using VPNs and trying to log on to the domain like that is slow an aggrivating.

I run 2 Terminal Servers for 40 people all over the world and the flexability is almost unparalleled.

There are two modes for this Administration (Only 2 concurent connections) and Terminal Services (As many as you are licensed for - Requires a licensing server).

If you want to try it out just go to add remove programs, add/remove windows components and then add Terminal Services. You will have a 90 day grace period. You will need to configure your firewall router to forward port 3389 to the server.

Windows XP contains the software but all other versions need to download the "Remote Desktop Connection" software from Microsoft.
