Setting up Microsoft office on a Mac to get to the SBS 2011 Exchange server when on the LAN and outside the network?

I need to configure a mac laptop running Microsoft office (2011, I think?) so outlook will work when the laptop is on the LAN and when out of the office.  The other people in the office have desktops and use OWA when out of the office.

this laptop will be in and out of the office.

There is a home windows PC that gets to the exchange server OK over the network, so the firewall IS set up OK for machines to get to the exchange server from outside.

I just don't know what I need to know for the mac to work both in and outside the network.

thanks!
