I wonder if you can help. We are a small company, only 4 people, and we have setup a server with Aras Innovator installed. This is a web based software that uses a SQL database for document control.

What would be recommended in terms of remote access to the server running such a program.

Should it be done as a domain controller either though there are only 4 of us or would it be simpler to use a workgroup (can workgroups be accessed remotely and securely?).
Alternatively, would it just be easiest to use remote desktop to access the server and load up aras with in the server?

Note: The server is not used for any other services other than Aras (except maybe dropdox for linking files on dropbox to Aras records)


Many thanks

Is there a client side application used to access the server or is the Application web based? I would advise against remote desktop unless you have a remote access VPN and even then I wouldn't allow anyone except an administrator access to the server.
