Ok - this is an easy one for you Filemaker Pro gurus out there. I am working for an International company that want to give access to some FileMaker Pro 5.0v3 Databases based in the US to users in New Zealand.

They have a WAN link and both ends have a high speed Internet link. The Databases are of a reasonable size - but have been developed by the end user - so the optimisation of the solution isnt great. The complexity level is medium with several linked FM databases making up the solution.

What is the best way to give New Zealand users access that is reasonably fast etc. Publish to a web site? Terminal Server? some other combination?

Any feedback greatly appreciated.

A couple of options, not listed in any order:

Web Interface

Terminal server (Citrix, Timbuktu etc)

Client over TCP/IP

The client over IP is the easiest to test -- just do it. The terminal Server option needs software at the server end, while the Web Interface needs most development and will produce a different interface and user experience -- it's not always appropriate.
