Access Server Remotely Over the Internet

I have a server running Server 2003 R2. Does anyone know how I can configure it so that users can access their home directory and local intranet over the internet - like a WebVPN?

You can setup RRAS and get them to connect via VPN. See http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/network/bb545442.aspx for what its all about and a series of step-by-step guides

not too well up on the dynamic dns but i think it will still work-you will need to open ceratin ports for the vpn to work on the router-you could use the server as a vpn server(you just run one of the admin tool wizards to set up the vpn) but you might need 2 nics in it-its a while since i have done this
