I have quite a few customers who run SBS (Microsoft Small Business Server) 2003, and everybody wants remote access of one kind or another. Email, files, their desktop - everybody wants in from the outside.
The easy part is getting them access - the hard part is making sure it's secure, and it got overwhelming quickly to see how many choices and variation there were.
So I undertook a comprehensive survey of the available choices and produced another Tech Tip which looks to have pretty wide coverage of the technology in question. In addition to the background and details, I include a set of Pro and Con lists for each one, which hopefully will guide somebody into making the proper tradeoffs.
It's mainly intended for SBS2003 users — SBS has some special features not available elsewhere — but should nevertheless still be useful to most of the Windows Server variants.
