I have a computer set up at a remote location which currently dials a vpn connection to a windows 2008 sbs.  Then, the person has connectivity to the network drives, printers, etc.

However, the speed is, of course, very slow across the vpn connection.

I was thinking of putting the cpu that is currently used to dial into the network at the physical network, and purchasing a thin client to dial into said computer.

Is this possible with thin clients or are there limitations on what it can connect to?

The receiving cpu would be a windows 7 pro computer on an sbs 2008 domain.

This will basically be for one connection, but would solve a lot of problems including sql connectivity, and speed from moving files across the vpn connection to view / print.
