|Subject:||Remote connection to server|

We have a Windows Server 2003. The server is on a network with other PC's
and all are connected to the Internet via a router/modem. Our ISP has given
us a static IP address. The server is not a Web server.
I have been able to connect (from a remote location) to my desktop PC from
home using either GOTOMYPC or VNC. I have also been able to connect to the
server with GOTOMYPC.
I have been reading about "Remote Desktop Web Connection" and have a general
question. Because we have a static IP address, can we setup the server to
accept Remote Desktop connections? This despite the documentation I have
read saying that when Remote Desktop Web Connection is deployed on a Web
server then clients can access the host.
If it is possible (without the server being a "Web Server") any help in
setting this up would be appreciated. Is there any good documention (novice
level) on what I want to do?
Thanks in advance for any help
