you will need a web server in the dmz to do what you need and if you don't get a domain name and then point the domain name to the ip address in dns and then its not really on the internet as you will not be able to google it

no it will not work that way imho

the only way to use .local is by ip address and the problem you will have is as your server is behind the firewall using vpn all the web visitors will need vpn running to see the page

Thanks have been looking at blogs about this but none mention the dmz zone. this helps to turn on the isa portion l and purchase the domain name.  thanks again.

Why not enable the Remote Web Workplace on the SBS server?
You would have to have 443 open, and also port 4125 (both going to the SBS server)
Using that you can assign Remote Desktop rights to the user, and they can log directly onto their computer over the web...

 Even if they don't have an Internet domain address (aka domain.com, not local)  They could access the RWW using HTTPS://ipaddress/remote
