Remote Access SBS 2003 R2?

Hi,
we've got an SBS2003R2 Server (with Exchange), Mac clients and we want to run an accounting app on it so we can access it via VPN (through router) as well as a TS session through RDP.
Is it possible, I don't think SBS2003 will run in app mode?
Possible solutions to resolve?
buy another server or PC and port forward?

TIA
SBS

Considering the cost of a workstation (hardware + Windows license if you have more than 2-3 users, a Terminal Server is the better option.  You don't necessary need additional hardware as you can run it using Virtual Server or VMWare on the same physical hardware (though if you end up with more than 4-5 users, you'll be better off getting a separate box because the RAM you'd have to dedicate to it could hurt the SBS systems performance.  (But plenty of people I've seen here and know personally have done with with 1 GB of RAM devoted to the TS).
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.
