If you were to log on via an VPN client you could accomplish this, you would just need the VPN software on the remote client computer. Or if you're just in need of transferring files you could set up an FTP (File Transfer Protocol) server, loads of free FTP server software out there, we use Serv-U. Easy to set up sharing and authentication.

Going the VPN route, yes that would be the proper way of setting it up. When you set up a new connection on the client just set it up as a VPN.
