Hi
we have a microsoft network, with server 2000 and 2003 servers. We also use windows xp for desktops.
We have a few users who work remotely. the way we enable this currently is
to enable routing access in server 2000.
grant dial in access to the user
redirect vpn protocols to the correct server.
also we the user uses remote desktop to connect to their office pc.
at current this works perfectly and all users are happy.
also it costs us nothing.

if we wanted to increase security without spending a fortune which would be a better way of increasing security for vpn users
i have a had a look at secureid and dedicated hardware firewalls to ena;b evpn, eg sonicwall.

I suggest either to use a VPN-Enabled Firewall with builtin SSL-VPN-Clients like the Astaro Security Gateways or to use a Terminalserver Solution like MS-Terminalserver or better Citrix Presentation Server. To acces the Terminalserver, you need allways a secure connection like aver a secure VPN (Astaro, Sonic, Cisco, etc.) or you connect via a Webinterface to Citrix. There are many possible ways and it is difficult to say: this is the best solution... All of them has their advantages and their price, so you should seriously evaluate a possible solution with a competent IT-Partner!
