I have a handful of questions that might us help you out...
1. how many users at each remote office?
2. What will the remote offices do with the main office? (Word processing, file sharing, CAD files?)
3. How much bandwidth does each location have?
4. What is your monthly budget for bandwidth?
5. How hands on do you want this project to be?
6. What OS's do you run?

-Cheers

Maybe this would be hijacking his thread, but I'm in the same boat. I guess I'll start my own thread & answer your questions.

That's a bit of an apples-to-oranges question.

A VPN is a way of gaining network connectivity to your office, as opposed to (for instance) dialup. pcAnywhere is a way of remote-controlling another computer, as opposed to VNC or Remote Desktop.

Your preferred solution MAY be, both VPN and pcAnywhere. Step 1 is to connect your VPN, then step 2 is to establish a pcAnywhere session through the VPN.
