MOXA through internet

By hhassan01 ·
Previous setting for the lab is in LAN, that is the server connect to MOXA serial device server so basically it's a small LAN
LAN Connection:
Now the idea is to test it through the internet and can control the serial device that connected to the MOXA.
Through WAN Connection:
The server is running Windows Server 2003 Standard Edition 32bit
I understand that need to create a VPN tunnel and configure Port Forwarding
Any suggestion on this. I'm very new in this type of configuration

Request for Clarification

What application is used to control this serial device? Does the application have any configuration options for remote connectivity and does the vendor support that?

It would be ideal if, for example, the application could setup a SSH connection, as then you would not need the VPN. It's also very possible to use a free SSH client like Putty and create a port-forwarded SSH tunnel without having to create a VPN.

Is this a workstation app, and if so, what OS on workstation? Or is this MOXA device simply controlled via web browser?

These two routers: I assume one is at the business and another at home? (the question is whether you are setting up a fixed site-to-site VPN or a remote-access VPN. What make/model routers do you have at each end?

If, for example, these are two business sites, it would be much more secure/reliable/simple to setup a dedicated site-to-site VPN vs using the Windows VPN capability.
