I have a deployment package that automatically sets up a VPN on a remote
client PC (public).  What I'm concerned about is the client PC obtaining a
virus and that virus finding its way to our server via the VPN.  The client
PC's do need Internet access & Email access while the VPN is enabled.  The
VPN is used only for communication with the SQL server -- basically a split
tunnel VPN solution.  (TCP/IP settings, Use default gateway on remote
network is NOT checked)

What are my options?

Thanks, Rob.
