We have a Windows 2003 R2 server in the office that we need to connect to remotely from the house.  We have a Linksys router with port 3389 forward to the

server.  By doing this,  are we exposing our network??  Is safe to do?  Can more than one user be connected to the server at the same time?  What are the pros

and cons of using remote desktop over the internet???

Please help.

Thank you
