It sounds like you are trying to give your IT staff off-site access to your
.local servers.

The tool for this is to let them access the .local domain from home  via VPN
through your firewall, and run Remote Desktop.
This is how our field engineers and foreign sales offices access our database.

But this brings its own security headaches:
How do you know the PC they are using is clean?
What if they have a bright but irresponsible 12-year old at home?

Basically we are talking about trust and professionalism, not just technical
ways and means.
