Accessing Win2K Pro ps router, remotely.

Depends on the router and the firewall, but probably some form of FTP. But if you have a firewall in the first place, punching holes through it for FTP may or may not be technically/politically feasible since FTP is a relatively insecure protocol.
The ideal solution would involve a VPN connection and then FTP transfer over that connection. Or, for that matter, a simple NT file share over a VPN connection.
