Specs: Windows SBS 2008 STD
Hello and thanks for reading !

I'm setting up a SBS2008 standard at our main office (30 users), we have a very small branch office with just two persons. I want them to be able to access the shared forders, and I don't know what would be the best way to do it. Do we have to setup a VPN, can we just use the SBS RWW?

Any advice would be great,

So one thing i could recommend is setting up a couple computers at the main office for these remote users, so that they can do the RWW. This will be the best in terms of bandwidth and speed as file transfers/modifications happen within the local network. Also with VPN, there are issues when working with Databases unless you override file extension blocks. Then you could set up a VPN as a Plan B, and also they could quickly sign in to VPN to grab their Exchange email if you are using exchange for emails, of course the computer you set up for these clients to use would also be able to sync with exchange so they can take their offline OST file with them while not connected to the network if desired!
