    In our small office we have a split Access database on our server that is used by 5 people in the office. We now need to be able to have 4 additional people connect to the database from home. I understand Access isn't really made for this purpose, so what would be the best way to accomplish this. I considered using Logmein to connect to PCs in the office, but we don't have enough available computers and it doesn't seem like an ideal solution anyway. The server is running Windows Server 2008 and the database is about 1.5 GB. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    VPN - virtual private network. You can set it up on your server, use LogMeIn Hamachi (or other VPN software), or maybe your gateway has that feature.
