logging into domain through VPN PIX 6.3

Ok I may not word this properly but I will try to get my point accross.

I have a user who refuses to use terminal services on his servers, and he would like to be at home and log into his domain. VPN is setup right now and with terminal services he can connect to his servers, so I know that I have a working VPN. Is there a way that I can remove terminal services and he could access his domain and use his home pc like he would be sitting at his desk at work. Also pc anywhere is out of the question. He would like to be able to run reports, print, look in network neighborhood and see his shares,ect. I didn't think this was possible but I need hard facts to prove to him yes or no.

Thanks

Anthony

Should work fine, we have users doing this everywhere. Make sure you send down your internal WINS server address)es) as part of the VPN negotiation. He'll then have to enable the Start Before Logon option in the VPN client, so he brings up the VPN BEFORE he actually logs into the domain at the PC startup.

I looked at the VPN client. Where is that option that you mentioned about start before login?

Thanks

As well as configuring WINS server addresses as part of the VPN Group, depending upon the operating system the user has on their home PC, it may be necessary to change the workgroup name to match that of the domain controller - without this, the network neighborhood may not contain all the servers on the network.
