VPN to Server for access to a Floating License

Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I have a cad program that has a floating license that was ported to our server, that can be used
by any of our computers that have the program installed. It will only allow the license to be used on 1 comptuer at a time. There is no problem accessing the license on our netwok, but we have some remote users that work at home and have the software installed on there system and would like to use it at home, but Im not sure how to set up an access to our server over the internet to get to the license file. I thought about trying a VPN solution but I have no experience setting up a VPN. Our server is a 64 bit SBS 2008R2 and the client machines are 64bit Windows 7. Any suggestions appericated.
