I am looking at options and configuration methods for allowing employees of a small office the ability to securely gain remote access to the office pc's. In the offce there are three PC's running Windows 2000 Pro and one running Windows XP Home. At the employees homes they are running either XP Home or Windows 2000. The office is using NAT addressing through the router. There will be times when one or all may need to connect remotley (snow day, etc.).
I have tried Real VNC using default ports but, failed to connect. I am assuming this is because I am going to have to configure port forwarding on the router?
Any suggestions on what secure methods I can use - how to setup the router - etc. would be appreciated and worth some points too : )
