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

You can setup an IPSec VPN connection from your firewall or router to his home router. You would have to purchase a VPN home router that is capable of establishing the VPN connection. Then your VP’s home network will be a part of your company network. You need to do what you can to reduce port and IP access from that network as there are security ramifications to consider.

    I set up my home machine twith a VPN connection to the outside IP address at work, then remote desktop to the inside server IP once the VPN is running. I didn't need to use any additional equipment, other than what I already had on my home system (running Vista).
