Sure: faster way is install Forticlient VPN in your win2k3 and you' ll have an ipsec standard and certified tunnel against your FTG. on the other hand, if you want deal with the several limitations of MS ipsec implementation, check http://support.microsoft.com/kb/816514

Would I be able to router traffic from my FG device to the Forticlient? Meaning route all traffic from the DMZ interface out to the Forticlient which will then route all that traffic to the Internet?

Site A (FG-60) -IPSEC TUNNEL-> Site B (FortiClient) I want all traffic from DMZ port from Site A to go out though the Internet from Site B via the Forticlient. See my REALLY bad drawing ;)

If you have a two network cards on that Server 2003 I suggest you make a site to site connection. I did that ~1 year ago and it works since then. If not just use FortiClient; it will work with this, too.
