I like the remote administration page in webconfig. It's a nice way to view the computers in your network and connect to them. I also like the option of VNC to control different client types. Nice stuff for admins!
But what do our end-users get? either
a) VPN that exposes our entire network to any crapware that's infected the user's home PC...
b) they use a solution like LogMeIn or GoToMyPC that bypasses our logging and access control...and often costs money on a monthly basis.
I ask you to look at SBS Remote Web Workplace. Remote-enabled users can connect into a web page hosted on the in-house server, authenticate, and connect to their office PC. The Windows version obviously uses RDP but it's proxied so that TSGrinder doesn't see RDP exposed.

My only concern is that this would be a Window only solution and since Foundations supports 3 client platforms, it would go against the idea of the platform.
