    Password policy for remote users

    We'll soon be thinking along the lines of allowing staff to access our TS/Citrix setup from home. We currently run 2003 server AD we won't have 2008 for a while so multiple password policies is not an option (without 3rd party tools).
    We would like to be able to enforce a stronger password policy for users that can connect from home, what ways could we go about this is it a feature of TS or Citrix gateway or would we need a VPN firewall of some sort?

    Suggestions.

    Cheers.

    Why not enforce a stronger password policy all round? Users then just have to remember one set of passwords instead of two.

    Alternatively creating a sub-domain would allow you to create a different set of password rules.

    Our current password policy causes enough problems for students and staff alike i'd like to avoid stronger for everyone. It would also be nice to avoid having to have a sub-domain for just the few staff that will be allowed to remote in.

    Then realistically 2008 Server is your only real alternative
