We are looking into providing a secure PC to another company that one of our staff can use to access our central domain when they have to work there. This will be a regular function as staff are rostered to work at that location. This company obviously have their own network which we will us for accessing the Internet to get back into our central system.

We want the users to logon that PC with their Central Domain userid / password. To ensure that the passwords / users are maintained and kept up to date I believe that I will require a Read-only Domain Controller in that location. Is this correct?

What else would be needed and what is the impact on the other companies system?

Would we also need Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 DirectAccess?

The reason for considering this option is that we have a application that we run on this PC that will need to send files to our central system for processing. These along with others also need to be reviewed remotely. These files can be anything from sound, word or images to name a few.

At this time we are only investigating possible solutions.

Thanks in Advance.
