VPN Recommendations

I need to setup a location in another state that has 15 computers.  I need them to connect to my active directory and network so that they can see the server files and print to our printers.  What is the best way to do this and keep a solid VPN connection.

Use a VPN firewall at each location. They will keep the VPN tunnel up and running continuously.
Agreed.  Hardware VPN is the way to go.

Make sure you setup split tunneling else the remote site user's Internet traffic will pass over your VPN.

I recommend an Cisco ASA 5505 K9 (3DES) at your main site and a Cisco ISR 861 router at the other.
