Currently we are using GBridge to connect via remote desktop into a PC at another location.  GBridge uses the remote computer's login credentials to allow users to connect.  We can have multiple users on the remote computer connected as different users at the same time (basically multiple people can work on different things at the same time).  

Does anyone have another option to GBridge?  Sometime that is very easily set up?  GBridge isn't widely used and there are some very glitchy things with it.

I'm looking more for another application that would allow quick VPN connection.  I want multiple users to connect under their login credentials that I've set up on the remote computer and be able to work on different things at the same time.

Windows Client machines are 1 user at a time  machines, servers handle multiple users at one time. My suggestions still stand.

Can you explain the process? I guess I don't understand.

you have a user working on 1 task, now the user connects via remote desktop into another computer and starts working on another task, user starts a long process on local computer, but continues to work on remote desktop computer.

A VPN only allows you to login to a network as if you were physically there and access its file resources, in order to access compute resources you will either need a server that can handle many different users at on time or the user would have to connect via remote desktop into an idle computer .. If another user logs into that previusly idle computer the first user will be disconnected.. if they try and reconnect while the 2nd user is using the computer the 2nd user will be disconnected. And around and around we go..

If more than 1 user have mouse and keyboard to a computer then the users have to communicate among themselves who has control at a period of time otherwise total chaos ensues. I've used tech support software i.e. logmein remote and had to co-ordinate mouse and keyboard with the user to get anything done.

A VPN is not a total solution it is only a partial solution, All it provides is a SECURE network between 2 end points  (Virtual PRIVATE Network) all it does is get a connection from your computer to a remote network..
