http://serverfault.com – We have a few developers that work, connecting in through a VPN for access to the development SQL Server 2012. Historically they've used Win7 machines and develop the website against this database in Visual Studio, using the built-in webserver for debugging. This worked great forever. There is no domain, the user just creates an identical windows account on the dev server with identical username/password, we add the user to a DBAdmin group, and magic, it works.
