What you want is a VPN connection, but you will have a hard time configuring this without a static IP address on your proxy server. If you don't have a static IP address, your users may have to call the office and check the current IP address of the proxy server before they can connect. Also, you'll need to be sure you have the correct port open on the proxy server (I believe it's 3389) in both directions for VPN to work. The users would also have to have access to an ISP connection from wherever they are - they would dial in to their ISP, then use the VPN dial-up networking connection to connect to your server. Here's where the IP address comes in; if you don't have a static IP for your proxy server, see if you can get one from your ISP, as this will greatly simplify your situation. Here's a link to an article on the Microsoft web site about setting up VPN on a Windows 2000 server: http://www.microsoft.com/WINDOWS2000/techinfo/planning/incremental/connectremote.asp

Hope this helps!

This will not work. VPN is a possible solution but an alternative is that you set up a RAS server with one or two analogue modems or ISDN lines. I think this is the easiest and fastest way to set this thing up.
Users will dial in directly to your RAS server and not via an ISP.

I don't know what OS you use but a combination of Windows 2000 Server and Windows 2000 Professional makes setting up a VPN environment much easier.
