What is the best method for a single user to access a database on server 2008 R2

Previously on SBS 2003, we are now on Server 2008 (migrated)  now remote user cannot access files on server shared drive. My thought was to set up a VPN but not sure how, second thought was to install Remote Desktop Services But Role Install recommends against it.

How did the remote user access the file when you used 2003

can you configure VPN to your Firewall/Router
If not RRAS on your 2008 server and control access with the dial in tab in AD
