Assuming a Windows VPN client you can do so by following the intsructions in the following link:

There are a few 3rd party VPN solutions such as some of the Cisco clints that also have similar options.

Thanks RobWill this is what I need.

However I removed the computer from the domain and thought I would make a VPN connection to add the computer back into the new domain (migrated from SBS2003 to SBS2011 over the weekend). I make a VPN connection and get the following error trying to add the computer to the new domain.

 domain failure

Make sure DNS on the client points ONLY to the SBS, and add the new DNS suffix, my domain.local, to the VPN/PPP adapter.  Use the SBS public IP to connect the VPN, at least for now.
