If you have even one Windows box on the network, I'd recommend just signing
up for http://www.logmein.com (Free version) on the Windows machine on the
network. No firewall jiggering needed and you just log onto the Windows box
on the LAN and then do what you need to using the browser there. Secure,
fast, and really really easy.
