i am mostly working away from home on my laptop... which is kinda of weak and it takes a while to compile some of my larger projects... however i have a quite powerful server at home... i was wondering if there was anyway to do the compiling remotely on the server? im using VS 2008 btw

VPN + remote desktop?

//edit:
I suppose xoreax's incredibuild + vpn would work quite well, other than the fact it is really expensive...

But I use a vpn to set up a repository on my home machine, vpn to it, and build on it and the copy the exe's back when time becomes an issue. Not perfect but it works

There are a couple ways you could do it.

The straightforward do-it-yourself way, is get friendly with the 'msbuild' command-line tool, which lets you build a VS project from the command line. Then it is not too hard to copy your latest source code over (perhaps with rsync), then use a SSH console to call msbuild. One you can do that, it's not too hard to write a script which does everything automatically.

Then as mentioned there's Incredibuild.

You could also set up your home computer as a continuous-integration server, and perhaps use one of the products listed here. I don't really have much experience with these. We use Parabuild at work but I never touch it, so I don't know whether or not to recommend it.
