Access Back-End Over the Internet?

Hi,

I've been using an Access application I wrote for an office with the
front-end stored on all computers and the back-end on one of them serving as
an Access file server.

Now we're moving to a 2nd office 15 minutes down the road. Only one office
will be open at a time, so theoretically it'd be possible to copy the
back-end manually every night from one office to another, but frankly,
that's pretty annoying.

So does anyone have any good Internet suggestions? Some way I can either (a)
have one office use the back-end database off the other computer (one office
has high speed Internet, it could be possible to get high-speed Internet at
the second office as well) or (b) automatically update the back-end database
over the Internet from one computer to the other besides for using something
really manual like e-mail (this needs to be really simple/automatic)?

Thanks.

Remote control a PC or connect via VPN to one office from the other....

Remote control would be way too slow to use well. How would I set up VPN?

Oh, and I should have mentioned, I'm doing this in Access 97, if it's
relevant.

To set up a VPN you need Windows2003 server or something similar...

Why? Have you ever used Terminal Services or PC Anywhere over the internet?
Even with dial-up I have found it quite acceptable. When people talk about
using VPN with Access they mean in conjunction with remote control software.
Using a VPN to run Access over an internet connection as you would normally over
a LAN is NOT going to give acceptable performance and will have a high incidence
of file corruption.

No, you got it backwards!! a VPN is about 100 times to slow over the
internet. Remote control software is EXACTLY what you need.

Using a wan with ms-access? How fast, how far?

I actually need my VPN in order to run my remote control software. Doesn't
everybody? How else do you gain access to the remote LAN? Surely it is not
simply open to the internet?

That's how I do it as I need to be logged into the domain.

However, if you are using pcAnywhere for example I'm sure you can
connect directly to the computer.
