A question that probbaly shows my lack of knowledge.

At Queen's we are currently piloting a Windows Terminal Server to 
enable people to work from off site.

What advantage does using a VPN solution such as pptp have over a WTS?

Also I have read several articles about RAS systems which seem to 
require an NT system to be loaded with modem cards. We are interested 
in providing a solution that uses the services of ISPs thus removing 
our need to provide modems on site. What are the possible systems we 
should be looking at.
