Looking for suggestions on a low cost solution.  We have our HQ with 3 workstations and MS server 2008.  We run BusinessWorks Software (SQL Database) on the server and the 3 workstations at HQ.  We can only get DSL connection at HQ.  BusinessWorks software will only run on workstations in the local domain.  It will NOT run across the internet due to slow internet connection.  We have 3 other fixed location sales offices that we would like them to have access to BusinessWorks software.  So....... what is the most cost effective solution to connect the 3 sales offices???  VPN/MS server/virtualized desktops or 6 computers and logmein or ?????
Thanks,
Lew

In my opinion, the best option would be to setup a vpn between the offices then setup a terminal server at your main location. You can install the BusinessWorks Software on the terminal server and deploy it as a Remote App.

Domain computers at the remote sites will receive the Remote App and when they open it, it runs through a remote desktop sessions but just presents the application to them. So to the end users, they just see the application and it acts like it is installed on their machine.. but in reality, it is running all on the terminal server. The bandwidth used in this case is a very small amount (the amount required to have an open RDP session).
