access Access via PIX ?

Testing two methods of remote access to an MS Access backend; Terminal Server and VPN. So far VPN is ahead. Using Cisco Easy VPN client I get an IP off a PIX, then "net use" it along with it's path, and then open a front end in Access that's been set to use this path to the back end. So far, so good; tested with 3 machines simultaneously; two going through the PIX.

It seems better than playing with Terminal Server and licensing; also it seems to work fine with XP Pro as the "server" ; ( I tested with Server 2003 but then wondered why I was bothering) .

Are there any "gotcha's" awaiting me ?
