Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If you are worried about security, take a look at using VPN.

It is safer that remote connection.

Here are the steps for remote connection

1. On your router, go to either security or services depends on the model, forward port 3389 to the local list of IP addresses or (one server) / PCs that the remote users will connect to.

2. if you have a firewall like ISA, this will be secured as you will do the routing there.
3. Now give the user who needs to connect your outside IP address, it should be able to connect.

    how are you connected (by router)? if yes then for example your router shud be able to see the next office and if your your office network is example 1.1.1.1 then your other office example if it is 1.1.2.1 then all you need to do is to go to run then \server IP

    You may need terminal services running on the machine with the ability to log in remotely (local admin group default access)

    Hello, I'm not sure you want to make them login remotely. Only if the refered server is a Terminal Server and is properly locked down. I assume you want your remote users to save/get files remotely (ex. My Documents folder redirection) or something like that. In either case you should configure a VPN between both points of your network. Each branch must have a different IP addressing subnet. (one can be 192.168.1.XXX and the other could be 192.168.2.XXX). When you have a VPN in place (providing that there are no traffic restrictions between routers) you will be able to "browse" each site remotely and clients from the second site will be able to login using the credentials on a Domain Controller in the first site. This is like a big picture explanation. Should you need more help, please provide us more detail on your intentions and hardware used. HTH
