Best Way to Remote Access a Network

Here is my issue, I have installed a digital phone system at a place i do consulting for. I can access it via IP address over the internet, I am familiar with just doing wide open static routes but I do not feel secure enough with doing that on a phone system. Any ideas on the most secure way to access it from the outside. I have 5 static external IP's and the phone system has a internal IP assigned behind a firewall.

SSH Tunnel? VPN?

www.logmein.com < cheap and it works well.

If you want to setup a VPN you'll need hardware that is costly if there isn't any thing in place that supports VPN currently.

Yep they do, just wanted to make sure everyone thought that should be secure enough. I will be accessing from anywhere secure and non secure internet connections.

Are you going to use the Windows XP VPN client? or a client software from watchguard(if they have one)? At a minimal, I believe that windows uses DES encryption.

IMO, you'll be fine.

There ya go, just utilize the VPN component of your in-place firewall. That will be secure enough (relatively speaking )

I would actually agree with you there.
