DB Admin being asked to develop Secured Remote Access

By jhbrock911 ·
I'm a database administrator that has been asked to essentially serve as the SysAdmin and NetAdmin for my company. One of the projects I've been asked to roll out in a rapid manner is the development and deployment of a secured internet connection to all of our remote users.
Here's a bit more history and detail:
We are a 911 Agency that handles all emergency call-taking and dispatching for the county. We have about 15 users that will need to connect to the system over the internet. I've had a fractional T1 installed, bought a TSU/DSU, Cisco 2501 Router and Crunchbox firewall.
Now for the challenge: Users will need to connect to one of three LAN servers and the entire session has to be secure so that we don't violate HIPAA regulations or share 'bad-guy' info with people that shouldn't have it. The servers that they'll need to connect to all run AIX 4.3.3 and UniData 5.15 (a multivalued database) on which we have our dispatching and records management software.
Users on our LAN use a program called wIntegrate to connect to the system. wIntegrate is really just a bulked up telnet client that is also capable of SSL connections.
So, down to my question: Can anyone help point me in the right direction for a "How-To" develop this connection, what additional soft/hardware I might need to ask my administrator for, etc. Like I wrote at the beginning, I'm really just a database administrator who's had this fall in my lap, and I really want to offer this kind of service to my users, plus I really think it would be a fun project. If you have any questions or comments please email me directly and I will post them in this discussion group.
Thanks in advance for everyone's assistance!
