A VPN would be more secure but it definitely isn't easier. And given
that your firewall runs Bering, I suspend that you don't want to add
large packages to your firewall?

Do any of the boxes behind your firewall support a VPN server (W2K, NT
Server)? If so, setting one of them up as a VPN server then using your
laptop as a VPN client would probably be the easiest.
