How can this be done?

I have some questions if anyone can help answer that would be great. Thanks in advance.

I have a 12TB media storage server that I want to share over the web.
I have a server running server 2008 with ISA 2006.
I am making my sister and her husband a HTPC and was wondering if there was a way I can connect their HTPC via their 1MB DSL connection to my server? Is that possible?
I have a 15MB down and 5MB upload.

Would I be making their HTPC VPNing into my server? If they were to stream it from my server, would that decrease my speed? Would their video buffer? What other options are there?

Secondly, I will install radmin on their computer for computer support. I know that radmin allows me to VPN in their computer, does anyone know if this will cause any delay/lag within radmin?

Thank You again

Any communications link is only as fast as the slowest link in the chain. As your sister only has a 1Mb connection so they will only download at 1Mb. Their upload speed, your download, will be even slower. They would not get the 5 Mb that your upload is capable off.

The advantage of a high speed Internet connection is that if five people with 1Mb connections connected to your server there would be no degradation until the six one came along.

That is the theory, the reality is likely to be a bit different.
