Windows 2008 Site to site VPN

I have a client that just threw wrench into a project.

We are discussing:
setting up a cloud based TS server for his remote employees thru 1and1.com
My client now wants to have his warehouse staff access the computer like it's on the local LAN

The problem I see with this is that he is gonna have all of his file shares internet accessible and this is not a good thing.

My suggestion is to setup a site to site VPN with his Cloud server and his Warehouse router firewall.

Does anyone know if this can be done with Windows 2008 server without the need for additional devices or appliances?

Of course that depends on what their gateway router/firewall supports but most do support VPN services.

if they will be accessing file shares at the main site, I would put the RDP server at the main site. The file server access is likely to consume more bandwidth than the RDP access...

Thanks.  I forgot about RRAS in all of this :)

In the end, I recommend TS sessions as their ERP application supports barcode scanners via terminal sessions.

So it will be just the TS port open and everything else will be local to their cloud server.
