VISTA laptop connecting remotely to Local domain network running WIN SBS2003 Server

I am confused as to whether to setup Remote Desktop for laptop or setup a VPN for the laptop and then how to do this.  We have all new equipment:  the network has 2 desktops and one laptop and a SBS 2003 Server and a router/firewall, Watchguard Firebox X55.

What are you wanting to accomplish?
Most useful feature is likely rpc/http, so that your mail will synchronize anywhere so long as you have an Internet connection.

VPN is good for remotely accessing or copying files, but if you have a desktop in the office, more secure, and easier to use, is Remote Web Workplace.

You can find various service options, configurations and descriptions at:

The solution just took too long to get to me.  It is good though.
