    Both should be able to work.

    Forward the following ports on yuor router to you workstations IP address.

    VPN = 1723
    Remote Desktop Connection = 3389

    You also need to right click on "My Computer" select properties and click on the "Remote" tab. Be sure that the tab is checked for "Allow users to connect remotely to this computer.

    I believe this is only available in Windows XP Pro and not the Windows XP Home version.
