If I have a home server, could I connect via VPN from any other computer and sync my device in iTunes (on the server)?

Are you trying to imitate the sync over WiFi or sync over USB? – Doug Harris Dec 20 '11 at 14:06
    
Either one would work. – Jesse Dec 20 '11 at 14:58

No, you'd also need some way of forwarding your USB port from your local computer to the remote computer1.

There are a few commercial applications2 that does USB over the net but a quick glance seems to indicate that they let you access USB devices on the remote computer locally and not the other way around.

1 When you say VPN I assume you also use some kind of remote desktop software.
