Do you have a server? We use it on a server and then create a remote app with terminal services. If you dont have it on a server, then just allow RDP (remote desktop) connections on the computer its installed on mate. We manage fine on a 2 meg pipe.
Yes we do have a Terminal server. I just wanted to get a few opinion on the setup i suggested above as i feel it's a ridiculous idea to even think about running Quickbooks via a VPN.

Unless you can get a faster pipe from the ISP's, using VPN is not going to work. Even with RDP or Teamviewer, it is really going to be a brick wall that you are going to keep running into. See the following as an example. It may give you some ideas to work with, due to your situation. http://www.vedivi.com/quickbooks/blog/how-to-use-quickbooks-remotely-over-the-internet.html
I think that the best option would be Quickbooks online, not two users trying to keep information in sync, over two slow connections.

Our remote App works just fine, if they need the files the next day sort of thing then just setup a DFS namespace and replicate the data over night. Our bandwidth is so small i cannot even copy large files during productino time because it will bring the other branch users to dialup speed so i have to replicate overnight with throtelling.
