From what you describe it sounds like what you want is to establish a VPN connection? I am also wondering is what you want to achieve is remote access? Have you looked at Terminal services or remote access (RAS),you may need to find out which specific ports on your router, you need to enable/open for specific services such as VPN connections or Terminal services or RAS,etc.
