If you want to originate ALL traffic from the remote facility, then a
VPN would be the best option. If you just want certain traffic like
www, then ssh tunnels would be best of course you prolly will have to
set a proxy. I have a friend that uses SecureCRT, never much cared for
it since putty is (IMHO is better) free.
