Hi, we have a Windows 2003 Std Server which is a DC, and Exchange 2003 Server as well.
We have another Windows 2003 DC File server
currently our Exchange Server has enabled Windows RRAS for remote users to login and access email, files from home/offsite
Question is is this good practise?
We also have a fairly powerful Watchguard Firebox x550e Firewall - which I think migh tbe better off handling the VPN?  install vpn clients on users home PCs?

adv of this and disadv of each?
