I'm curious if solidworks users needs VPN access to the server to access and modify CAD data, or can they access files and modify through the ePDM web portal?
if you enable the web server and user should be able to check out CAD File and check it back in.
But if there are any add-in's / customisations, They wont work !!
I would suggest, Create a replicated archive serever and connect it main archive server over VPN.
Hope this helps !
